The life of the Berlins underground movement shown through the eyes of a rising DJ
11 September 2008 | by krameriaSee all my reviews

Saw this movie on the 7th of September 2008 in Toronto at the exclusive North American screening of the film. The film was not chosen to be a part of the Toronto International Film Festival; very surprised as to why (extensive use of drugs?).

The story line was not incredible complex but the acting was absolutely magnificent. Further if you have been a clubber in a hardcore sense of the word you would be able to relate to the movie in a much stronger way. Up till now my top clubbing movie was "It's All Gone Pete Tong"; this movie is a 100 times stronger in a dramatic sense and much more interesting to follow.

The crowed loved the movie and had applauded it and the director at the end of the film.

I am very picky when it comes to movies, but this one for me was definitely a hit! I would go as far as stating that this is one of my favorite movies of the year! This movie is reminiscent of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
