Ostkreuz tells the episodic story of 15-year-old Elfie, who literally and metaphorically inhabits a no-man’s-land between the two Germanies shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The film deploys a neorealist aesthetic to reinforce the difficulties confronting the girl, and by inference, Germany.With his grimly told and beautifully sad story about Elfi's roamings through the Berlin underworld, MichaelKlier has recorded a life for which television pictures are too rapid and too volatile.
