Das wilde Leben

Das wilde Leben (Eight Miles High in the english version) is a German biographical motion picture, set in the 1960s and depicting the “wild life” of Uschi Obermaier, a West German groupie, interpreted by Natalia Avelon. Obermaier enjoyed sexual freedom at the legendary Kommune 1 in Berlin after being with the krautrock band Bröselpilze. In the Kommune, she becomes friendly with Rainer Langhans. The young woman from Munich gains employment as a model, and becomes a sex symbol and youth icon. Now a cover girl in Playboy magazine, she meets rock stars such as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, while Italian film producer, Carlo Ponti, offers her a ten-year contract, but she declines: her freedom is more important than a contract.
