This movie portrays the drug scene in Berlin in the 70s, following tape recordings of Christiane F. 14 years old Christiane lives with her mother and little sister in a typical multi-storey apartment building in Berlin. She's fascinated by the 'Sound', a new disco with most modern equipment. Although she's legally too young, she asks a friend to take her. There she meets Detlef, who's in a clique where everybody's on drugs. Step by step she gets drawn deeper into the scene
After Christiane F.
After the initial success of the book and the film, Christiane found herself becoming something of a celebrity, both in Germany and other countries in Western Europe. A subculture of teenage girls in Germany began to emulate her style of dress as well as making visits to the Bahnhof Zoo station, which became an unlikely tourist attraction. This surprised experts on youth drug abuse, who feared that despite the film's bleakness and the many sordid scenes (particularly those portraying the horrific realities of cold turkey), vulnerable youths may have regarded Christiane as a cult heroine and role model. The book sold so well - it was translated into most major West European languages - that Christiane remains able to support herself from the royalties. In the early 1980's Christiane released several records in collaboration with her then-boyfriend Alexander Hacke, with whom she also appeared in the 1983 German film Decoder. She later lived in the US and in Greece, before returning to Germany in 1993. She continued to struggle with drug addiction, however, and in 1994 enrolled in a methadone programme: treatment she has subsequently returned to when necessary. Christiane still receives fan-mail and is occasionally contacted by the German media, wanting to know how she is doing after all these years. As of 2008, she lives in a small apartment near Berlin with her son (born 1996). An animal-lover since early childhood, she is a keen equestrian
