A must see for Nina Hagen/Lene Lovich fans, otherwise...
24 June 1999 | by agonistSee all my reviews

This movie is a real pleasure when Nina Hagen is being her wonderful freaky self (and looking very good, btw), but the rest of the time it's a little bit too much 70's German rock and too much pretentious student film monologue by Herman Brood. The scene where Nina Hagen robs a bank with an M-16 rifle makes this movie worth seeing by itself, though, and wondering when she's going to pop up next and what she's going to do keeps you watching. The version is saw was nearly 90 minutes, but I understand that there is a shorter version. Maybe that one trims the scenes that I found a little dull.
