Looks so well shot and composed!!!

 

Kind of reminds me of this (semi) classic from early 80's/late 70's

Here's one with Brandauer, he directed and starred in this film. He had a different title in English and the true story of the film was made in another German version four or five years ago and was a better film all in all.

correct

 

not such a great film, but more of a zeitgeist thing as it was based on a true story book Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo about essentially children using heroin in 1970's West Berlin. I didn;t know about a remake - will look up....  :thumb:

My then girlfriend had this book and almost every home I went into while living in Austria had this book, you are right it was a big thing.

Heavens!-- I saw this in the EU in the late 70's in Spanish --no Subs !--but it was captivating flick--wonder if it is on any sites now?

Good one Mr BuZZ!😋

It's a great movie and as zippi noticed, wonderfully shot. One can't help but wonder if Guillermo del Toro's excellent Pan's Labyrinth wasn't greatly influenced by this movie. I have hopes SBS shows masterpieces like this in future.

P.S.There are copies of this on ebay including The Criterion Collection. You'll have to check what region format they come in. Subtitled in English.

...two (for the price of one) both similar vintage, both transformative roles for the leads

That's Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade. C&W singer Dwight Yoakam was pretty good as a redneck. 

I don't know what the other pic is from.

Correctamundo!!!!

 

The other one is of a similar vintage (late 90s) and the lead is in a transformative role.

I'm sure you've seen them a 1000 times however in this film they are trying to look different - in a way.

From the beginnings of a landmark director - arguably their first masterpiece.

Shown on SBS countless times and rightly so...
