Jørgen + Anne = SantAnne liebt PhilippTotally True Love (Jørgen + Anne) DF
Norway 2011, 84 Min., German commentary, 10 years and older
Ten-year-old Anne thinks that even without boys, life would be great: swimming, dancing, making and eating fish fingers or just generally running around having a good time. Anne is a real bundle of energy, and always does the opposite of what you're expecting of her. It can happen that she steals her older brother's trousers because they look way cooler than hers. Then one day Philipp moves into town, into the house at the end of the road. The house is supposedly haunted by a woman whose dead body was never found. Philipp doesn't seem to mind; he's just a great guy. Anne wants to be friends with him. When she sees him, she feels a tingling sensation in her belly. "Totally True Love" is based on a bestselling novel by the Norwegian writer Vigdis Hjort. Newcomer-director Anne Sewitzky has adapted it into a sensitive children's film that treats the subject of the first surges of emotion as well as the fear of the abysses of adulthood, told in a lively manner that corresponds with childhood experiences and interspersed with plenty of thrills and chills.
