Storyline

David, a recently fired scrapyard worker and Marie, a prostitute with-a-dog, both about 20 years old, meet on New Year's Eve in a win-try street in Berlin. She doesn't want to work in a supermarket, he does't want to work in scrap yard. Deciding to rebel against the capitalist system, they hit the road. But soon their cash runs out. As David's arm is plastered from an accident Marie continues to prostitute herself to finance their restless journey through the Ruhr area. Their love and their will to survive guide them though all problems. Written by Wiki

A waste of good music and my $7
27 January 2001 | by mykejmSee all my reviews

I won't waste any more of my time than is necessary to say how poor this film is. In a story that should explore love and money and the motives that drive our search for each, there should certainly be more character development than exists in this drawn-out film. It's hard to connect with either of the main characters in the story -- so much so that by the end you wish they would just go away.

The music is very good at times, I'm just sad that Yo La Tengo and Velvet Underground are associated in any way with this underachieving cinematic failure.
