A woman travels to West Berlin from France, and she drinks a lot of booze.
28 February 2007 | by glitterinyourgruelSee all my reviews

There is not much of a cohesive plot to speak of, but nonetheless this is a great film. The lead character does not speak, so if this would bother you then you should not watch this film. I think of this as a German, experimental Absolutely Fabulous. Nina Hagen has a bit role in this film, and she is spectacular. The tone of this film is a lot like Fassbinder's Satan's Brew, in fact Ottlinger could be called the female counterpart to Fassbinder. This is a comedy, but a subtle, and strange one. Unfortunately, I don't think this film is available in the U.S., however a German woman showed it to me and the version she had did have English subtitles, so it is out there somewhere.
