It is one of the most unremittingly grim portraits of drug addiction ever filmed. That it is based on actual events makes it more heartbreaking. “Christiane F.” is the portrait of a young girl who between her 13th and 15th years went from a fairly average childhood into the horrors of drug addiction, prostitution and life on the brink of death. She lives in an apartment with her mother, and resents the regular presence of her mother’s boyfriend. With friends, she experiments with alcohol and pot, and then, after a rock concert (David Bowie, playing himself), she sniffs some heroin, “just out of curiosity.” Before long, she’s shooting heroin, and not much longer after that she is selling her body to buy it.
