Storyline

In the late 1960s, after graduating in Mathematics, the German Stefan Brückner hitchhikes from Lübeck to Paris to see the world without any money. He befriends Charlie in an arcade and they go to a party. When Stefan meets gorgeous American Estelle Miller at the party, Charlie advises him to stay away from her. However, the straight Stefan falls in love with Estelle and, after breaking in to a house with Charlie to rob it, he follows her to Ibiza. Stefan seeks the hotel of his fellow citizen Dr. Ernesto Wolf where Estelle is lodged and asks her to leave the place and stay with him in an isolated seaside house. Before leaving the hotel, Estelle steals some money and a pack from Wolf. Soon, Stefan learns that Estelle had stolen 200 doses of heroin and he decides to try one fix with her, in the beginning of his trip to hell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Estelle Miller: You know what's really awful?
Stefan Brückner: No, tell me.
Estelle Miller: Getting hooked. It's the end. But, if you only take one shot every once in awhile. Its no different than an occasional drink or cigarette.

Classic 60s Drug Tragedy, really one-of-a-kind, a small classic.
16 September 2001 | by favershamSee all my reviews

Has there ever been an Angel of Death like MIMSY FARMER in Barbet Schroeder's 1960s heroin opus? Sort of Jean Seberg with a hypodermic. Pink Floyd score. Despite some ultimately insignificant weaknesses, a classic, shamelessly ripped off by Erich Segal/Noel Black for their inept JENNIFER ON MY MIND (1971), although Tippy Walker, playing a similar character, is herself very junkie-appealing in the latter mess. MORE, though, is terrific, a great 60s drug movie and, simply, an important document of its time. Very much a cult film so join the cult.

No American movie then, as far as I can remember, charts the same territory. MIMSY's an astonishing archetype, elevating this into mythic realms. Not for the faint-hearted. Great sex scenes too.
