Drama • R • 1981 • 2 hr 11 min
Top 10 for me. The atmosphere, the feeling of being a youth and struggling with addiction, temptation whilst still growing up
Hard to digest biopic/adaptation... Acting sometimes lags, but it's the dramatic story that you're looking at...
One of my favorite Films. Comes really close to the book, and has the same dark vibe, seen from a kids perspective.
A harsh movie about drug addiction by an adolescent based on a true story. Hard watch.
Heartbreaking, raw & disturbing. Not glamorized or romanticized - based on a true story.
Realistic, heavy to watch and disturbing.
Gritty picture about drug use amongst the youth
A realistic and well-acted tragedy. A really, really great movie. Oh yeah, David Bowie is in it too
Well, this movie perfectly shows us how to live Christiane could look like, the main thread is brilliantly presented.
