They're taking her children away... because they said she was not a good mother . . .

I saw the Berlin show in Amsterdam last year. It was amazing.

Julian Schnabel's daughter directed the film that is shown behind Lou when he performs Berlin live. It's an amazing piece of piece of film and stars French actress (Roman Polanski's wife). I think her name is Emmanuelle Seigner. She portrays the main character 'Caroline'.
