Best Times

"To wind in our hair and love! To cigarettes and beer! And the full moon as our compass."

Is it love if it's bigger than freedom? Kati and Jo are teenage girls, best friends, cruising through rural Bavaria at the end of summer. Kati is anxiously waiting for news of her application to be an exchange student in the U.S. - even if it means not connecting with the love of her life. How do you know if it's "real love" anyway? Jo, on the other hand, is the one who would rather find a guy who's as interested in her as she is in him. Do you have to get away from your roots to be free?

The first film in Rosenmüller's trilogy on Bavarian roots is a poetic and touching tale about leaving home or staying. It shows that no matter where and how you live, growing up is not easy.
