Solo Sunny

Synopsis: Sunny is the singer of band trying to establish itself in the music-scene of East-Berlin. They play regular gigs in small towns, but Sunny feels out of touch with the audience and her life as a whole. She begins a relationship with the amateur saxophonist and studied philosopher Ralph who writes her a very personal song - but his obsession with death and unfaithful lifestyle is not for her. After getting into a quarrel with a band member who harasses her and telling off a show-host she is thrown out of the band. Abandoned, she struggles to regain control over her life.

Ladies and gentlemen,

welcome to this lovely house.

A colorful spectacle awaits you!

That's the motto

of our quality show this evening.

Speaking of quality...

Someone said...

"You can't go on stage

with state shoes.''

I said, "Why not?''

"I can if they're in the box."

And now...

some of the finest ... The Tornados!

Hit it boys!

Listen to that feedback!

That's the point

of a qualified technician.

Back to quality... Here's Monica Metz

Ernesto Z.

Extra class dance impressions.


Lawrence and Lu!

And last of all...

your humble host Benno Bohne.

What should I do?

There's no john.

I caught a cold.

It's biological.

Hey, Missy.

Look who it is.

You've got a pigeon problem.

Pigeons do damage.

Clear out your window cabinet.

I don't see any.

Am I blind or something?

Who knows what you see,

Mrs. Pfeifer?

Just throws out her laundry.

Too lazy to wash it.

Breakfast not included.

Why not?

- I skipped work for you.

- It's not up for discussion.

Not very friendly.

Why did you take me home then?

- Where's the toilet?

- Half flight down, take the key.

Want some coffee?

What the hell for?

Why didn't you respond

to our citation?

I didn't receive it.

The mailboxes are broken.

The kids steal my mail.

And I travel a lot.

Mrs. Sommer.

There are complaints

that your living habits

are a nuisance to your neighbors.

Do you wish

to say anything?

No, I don't have anything to say.

Loud music...

...entertaining men...

...pigeon nest.

- Mrs. Pfeifer reported me?

- We register all complaints.

That's strange.

Can I have a sheet of paper?

- A what?

- Just a blank sheet of paper.

There's a tenant across from me.

He masturbates in the open window.

Do I have to tolerate that?

Do I have to shut the blinds

all day to avoid that?

Must I accept that?

File a complaint.

No. A complaint won't be necessary.

Maybe try to keep

the music down a bit, Ms. Sommer.

- Would you sign this?

- I'm not signing anything... period.

I hereby confirm with my signature

Ms. Sommer's behavior

does not trouble me

in any way whatsoever.

- An accident, maybe.

- I wouldn't bet on it.

Don't get sand everywhere.

- Hi, Sunny.

- I told you I'm going away.

- Right now?

- This second.

- Did you like that?

- You mean the music?

Think up some lyrics for me.

Not really my expertise.

- When are you back?

- Next week.

- When?

- Wednesday maybe.

Then we can go for a drink.

- I don't want to go for a drink.

- Then I'll visit you with a bottle.

I don't want you to.

You ruin a good idea.

- I brought my taxi.

- I have a ride.

Excuse me, I have a question.

Did you step on the woman's hand?

I wouldn't think of it.

What do you think of

"udder masseur''?

- What's that?

- A farmer.

It's a joke for the real crowd.

- I think it's good.

- I don't like it.

- Why not?

- I don't know. I just don't.

4 complaints:
''Singer is inaudible''.

You guys are too loud.

Mr. Bohne,

you don't understand music.

It's a drag.

We need a new style.

- We should do jazz and revolution.

- Amen.

Forget the house

and a Swedish water faucet.

I thought we're talking about style.

- I think tonight's the night.

- For what?

For screwing.

Can't you say anything else?

Not clever. Just different.

- Why don't you want to?

- Why should I?

- Because I can really get down.

- So can I.

To sleep.

Tonight's the night.

Mind stepping out?

Be right back.

Damn, man!

Can't blow with that lip.


Now what do we do?

- Back to Berlin for a new player.

- I'll go too.

- Sunny's to blame.

- Why?

Well, she shot him down.
