Cult Classic LINIE 1 Makes UK Debut with Brand New Restoration from Studiocanal ( @StudiocanalUK )

Delve deeper into the STUDIOCANAL catalogue with the curated CULT CLASSICS collection. Discover eclectic, boundary pushing rarities, genre classics, and forgotten cinematic treasures.

This brand new restoration of the cult German film, LINIE 1, based on the wildly successful stage musical, sees Sunnie leaving her stifling provincial hometown to find rock musician Johnnie, who got her pregnant on a one-night stand.  She ends up at Berlin’s bustling, chaotic Zoo station, where she gets stuck on underground Line 1, encountering an array of fringe urban characters including hipsters, pimps, punks, drunks and rap queens, who help her on her quest to find her elusive lover.

LINIE 1 features winning performances from a fantastic cast including Inka Victoria Groetschel as Sunnie, the Alice in Berlin’s wonderland, Petra Zieser (The Edukators) in multiple roles, and Johannes Krisch (In The Fade) as Johnnie. Directed by Reinhard Hauf (Berlin Film Festival Golden Bear winner for Stammheim), the film offers a stinging critique of a divided Germany before the fall of the Berlin wall, but also serves as a fascinating portrait of Berlin’s vibrant and unique bohemian society – the literal underground of the city.

With a fantastic, catchy soundtrack and irrepressible energy, LINIE 1 – one of the most successful German musicals ever released – is a quirky gem that fans of cult hits Subway, Streets of Fire, Run Lola Run and Victoria are bound to enjoy, and anyone with a nostalgia for the 80s should not miss. LINIE 1 is one train journey you won’t mind getting stuck on!

LINIE 1 is available to buy on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital from 20th February 2023, and available to pre-order HERE.
