Synopsis by Mark Deming
A pair of unlikely lovers make their way across Europe in this offbeat comedy drama from Germany. Olga (Clemence Poesy) is a 16-year-old girl who imagines she'll be spending an uneventful summer tending the counter at her parent's filling station when a driver has a wreck in a nearby garden. It seems Daniel (Bruno Todeschini) is an artist wrestling with a midlife crisis and thoughts of suicide. As Olga offers to help, they decide running off to the French Riviera might be just the thing for both of them. Olga and Daniel hit the road and a blossoming flirtation begins, though Daniel isn't sure what to do when he realizes his attraction to Olga is more than just physical. Olgas Sommer (aka Olga's Summer) was the second feature film from director and screenwriter Nina Grosse.
