Christiane F: Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo

"Wir, Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" by "Christiane F", memoir of a teenage heroin addict and prostitute, was a massive bestseller in Europe and is now a set text in German schools.

Bahnhof Zoo was, until recently, Berlin's central railway station. A kind of equivalent (in more ways than one) to London's King's Cross...

Of course my local library doesn't have it. So I'm going to have to order it through a bookshop and plough through the text in German. I asked my druggieworker Maple Syrup, who is Italiana how she learned English and she said reading books is the best way.

For some reason every section except Part 1 is ENGLISH SUBTITLED ~ wahey!

Some kindly German has posted up all 13 parts of the movie ...

Part 12B Tut mir leid, aber keine Untertitel from here on. Watch this from the end, it makes up the gap between 12 and 13 as posted here
The overlap comes in at about 9 and a half minutes, just before the end, when she's whipping Stotter Max with the flyswatter:

Thanks for sharing that video. The more that people can be made aware of the problem the more harm reduction programs might be started. Thank you.

I think this is the best film about heroin addiction I have seen by a long way. Far better than Requiem for a Dream, Trainspotting, Drugstore Cowboy or any of the others...
