Von mädchen und pferden (Of Girls and Horses)

Feature Film Germany 2014

Alex is a 16-year-old dropout. She has been taking drugs, self-harming and truanting from school. Exasperated, her mother sends her to work on a farm with lots of horses, far from home in Northern Germany, giving her one last chance to find a balance in her life. There she meets Nina, her teacher, a 30-year-old lesbian who is looking for a break from her daily routine, and Nina's girlfriend. In the beginning, Alex hates country life, but then she slowly creates an unexpected connection with the horses. Then Kathy, an upper-class girl who is the same age as Alex, arrives on the farm for a vacation. In the beginning, the two girls do not seem to get on well, but all it takes is one weekend alone and things take a different and exciting turn. A sweet coming of age story. A minimalist, low budget film, directed by Monika Treut, who made the unforgettable cult movie My Father Is Coming.
