Christiane F. ????
This is an amazing and reportedly true story, first told in the book Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo, of a 14 year girl who grows up in Berlin, and gets caught up in IV drug use culture, becoming seriously addicted herself, eventually leading to her alienation from society, and descent to a point of absolute desperation, prostitution, and violence. It is a very realistic portrayal, very graphic at times, and honest about a horrid underworld that most of us have little contact with. Allegedly, Christiane gets out of the drug culture by the end of the film, though she has since relapsed numerous times. The full story could be found at  . Quite graphic, this is a very moving, and very depressing film. It should not be seen by children, but very worthwhile for parents with children.
