Movie Info

In this downbeat drama from Germany, Sabine (Jana Pallaske) is the 16-year-old daughter of divorced parents; when her mother grows tired of looking after her, Sabine is sent to live with her father in a dangerous section of East Berlin. Sabine gets to know Eddie (Frank Droese), who washes windows in the apartment block where Sabine and her father live; Eddie is friendly with Micha (Toni Blume), a teenage delinquent who supports himself as a petty criminal and tries to encourage Eddie to join him. Eddie has qualms about becoming an outlaw, but the decision is made for him when a thug attacks Micha, and Eddie comes to his rescue, accidentally killing the assailant. Eddie, Micha, and Sabine are now faced with difficult decisions about what to do and who is to blame. Alaska.de is the first dramatic feature from writer and director Esther Gronenborn, who previously distinguished herself in documentaries. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
