Crass exaggeration and the proud display of ugliness are at the core of Oskar Roehler's new feature "Tod den Hippies!! Es lebe der Punk", which is set in the 1980s: Young Robert (Tom Schilling) can no longer stand the – hilariously caricatured – hippie idyll at his rural boarding school. He shaves his head for a Mohawk hairdo and moves to Berlin, the concrete island for artists, dropouts and crazies. Life is wild there, and one spends the nights at the legendary "Risiko" club, listening to Einstürzende Neubauten or Nick Cave while streams of Vodka are flowing. Yet during the days, Robert cleans the stalls at a peep show, for one still has to earn a living. Luckily, beautiful Sanja works there as well, and Robert falls head over heels in love… As a semi-autobiographical, yet far from sentimental work, "Tod den Hippies!! Es lebe der Punk" boasts many memorable characters (played, among others, by Frederick Lau and Hannelore Hoger) while telling of ultimate highs and hangovers, happiness and catastrophes. Thus as far as style and attitude go, it is a veritable piece of punk itself.
