Storyline

In this East German teen musical, a group of girls are planning to take their summer vacation together on the Baltic coast. When a loud and obnoxious group of boys intrudes on their holiday, the girls are horrified to learn that the boys have the same vacations plans as them. The two groups quarrel with each other and compete over a number of things, but gradually an attraction starts to form. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Feel good teen movie with less GDR-related clichés one would expect
9 June 2005 | by JulesenSee all my reviews

If you like chick flicks and an adorable cast plus bubble gum entertainment, this might be a movie for you. It's a cult classic here in the Neue Bundesländer and my parents even owned the soundtrack back in the 1960s and 1970s. Don't expect so much GDR-stereotypes but Musical-stereotypes in general. The film was filmed in the region I grew up in so it's way nostalgia for me - even though I was born in 1981. The stars - Chris Doerk and Frank Schoebel - were an item back then and very popular actors/singers in the GDR. This movie has been turned into a stage musical for the summer 2005 season and it'll take place by the Baltic sea. I am sure that all the (old and new) fans are going to come out and enjoy the show.
