Cast: Tabea Hanstein, Arturo Perea Bigwood, Christiane Paul, Tobias Oertel, Olaf Krätke. 93 mins
11-year-old Lola lives with her mother on the houseboat “Erbse”. But nobody in her class envies her for it, everyone just thinks Lola is strange. If only because Lola doesn’t get her hair cut and never washes one spot on her neck. What they don’t know is that Lola does it to remember the last meeting with her father and his last kiss before he left the family. Lola’s only friend becomes her new classmate Rebin, who lives illegally in Germany with his family in precarious circumstances. When Lola learns about this, she wants to help.
An entertaining film for the whole family with a fine balance between humour and sadness, traditional and modern life concepts and interculturalism.
