Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Authenticity gives some value to this otherwise depressing film about a pair of addicts, "Ex" and "Hopp," who have taken their names from an instruction formerly printed on German beer bottles ("ex und hopp" means "empty, and throw away"). Filmed in the Charlottenburg area of West Berlin, which is famous for being the hangout of homosexuals and drug addicts, this movie features members of those communities as actors and extras. Aside from its other contents, some may find the film's nudity and depicted sexual encounters offensive.
