Storyline

"Beauty and decay" is a documentary about three rebels, who shine even brighter than the rest of the vibrating East Berlin boheme of the 80ies: Sven Marquardt, Dominique Hollenstein (Dome) and Robert Paris. All of them being more mystical creatures than real punks. This movie reveals how little the colorful East Berlin punk-scene had in common with the one-dimensional aesthetic of its western counterpart. The uniqueness, authenticity and offhandedness of this subculture was impressive. Written by SIB
