Movies now playing: Zürich
with Welket Bungué, Jella Haase
The West African immigrant Francis wants to lead a decent life in Germany. As a stateless moonlighter, however, he is soon driven from a hellish building site and accommodation into the arms of the windy drug dealer Reinhold, who uses him as an errand boy and introduces him to Berlin's red light restaurants. Only when Francis meets the high-class whore Mieze does he try to break free from Reinhold's clutches. – Modern adaptation of Alfred Döblin's novel «Berlin Alexanderplatz».
