Worth watching because of the lead actress, not because of Debbie Harry.
Although this movie has been advertised on cable TV as starring Deborah Harry, she actually has only a brief cameo role. The real star is the lead actress, Hanna Schygulla. Though the script is a bit thin, Hanna Schygulla is so appealing that it is easy to become engrossed in the movie. It's hard to understand why such an attractive and capable actress, who was a major star in Germany, never got much attention in Hollywood. The plot is basically about a woman whose luck gets so bad that she hits rock bottom, but then takes advantage of curious turns of events to turn her life around. In the process she learns what is really important to her, and also comes to realize who her real friends are.
