Dealing with queerness, art and belonging, This Is Not Berlin revolves around a very particular and insular moment in Mexican history, juxtaposing the 1986 World Cup in soccer with the world of underground clubs, protest art and queer desire. A cast of beautiful young men and a young Patti Smith lookalike make the energy of adolescence that emanates from this movie palpable.
Rolling back the years to Mexico 86 for an outsider coming-of-age story. Scenes of boys with killer cheekbones & eyeliner dancing to doomy music in nightclubs. Scenes of artists making sculptures from televisions & neon & throwing offal at happenings. Not the most sophisticated film but very evocative of a point in time & I loved the period detail
