Storyline

It is about sweeping love, rock & roll and getting rid of all that stale air of the fifties. You've got the good guys - that's LULU and JIMI - and the bad guys: Lulu's mother GERTRUD, her secret lover SCHULTZ, the chauffeur, and a wicked old shrink, VON OPPELN, crouching in his gloomy office like a spider waiting to pounce on his prey LULU. Light and darkness, bright garish colours, hot rock & roll and wild dance numbers mark this road movie about lovers fleeing from the evil powers of a deeply bigoted society. Written by Anonymous

There was ONE good scene in this movie...
22 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...when Jimi points out that the War (WWII) was fought to make everybody free from racism/xenophobia and made a guy apologize for a racist comment he made to Lulu.

The acting was good, and both protagonists were attractive and fairly believable in their roles. I liked the controlling mother, though showing the father's self-castration was a bit over-the-top.

In general, I agree with the first poster that this movie was weird, and I was actually nauseous from the gunfire, blood, fight scenes, and views of hypodermic needles by the end of the movie.

Also, as an American, I was hoping to see a German movie, and there was all this English dialogue, American music, and American cars in the movie, which spoiled the experience for me.
