Young Berliner David (Florian Stetter) meets Marie (Sabine Timoteo), a young hooker with a dog. They don’t like their jobs, and deciding to rebel against the capitalist system, hit the road. Not surprisingly, their money soon runs out and Marie returns to her old profession.
Nine years after his award-winning documentary The Great Silence, Philip Gröning followed it up with this bleak yet romantic road movie romance through the Ruhr. Shot in grainy, high-contrast photography and with a rocking soundtrack of tracks from Calexico and Can to the Velvet Underground!
