"Dear god where do I begin?
This film had so much potential. Uschi Obermaier is a former fashion model, actress and one of the protagonists of the 1968 left-wing movement in Germany. She is considered an iconic sex symbol. She also wrote an autobiography of her wild life called Das Wilde Leben which was a best seller.
This film was *suppose* to be based on her book. Some parts are some aren't. For starters I think they did a terrible job picking the actress to play Uschi. The girl looks nothing like the real Uschi Obermaier. The real Uschi Obermaier was so gorgeous it hurt to look at her. To know what I mean, google her name and look under images. Natalia Avelon is pretty but she is all "makeup pretty". No natural beauty like Uschi Obermaier. Another thing is the badly done chronological order. "Uschi" looked exactly the same from 1968 all the way through 1983.
All in all, just rent this movie. If you're a guy you might like the film a lot since "Uschi" is naked 90% of the time she's on screen.
Also they left out the music video of Summer Wine starring Ville Valo and Natalia. Very very stupid thing to do seeing that was the best thing about the film. The song."

"This film is great. It shows a young girl coming out of suburban milieu, and does what every young girl dreams about. She does it all, as supermodel, young revolutionary by default, and a lover to the most famous rock musician at the time. Remarkable, she did not follow money, even if she could had made a tone of it. She is living her dream and not dreaming about it. Again, this film is may not for everybody. It includes strong nudity and sexuality. But if you follow the story, the film is great."
