Synopsis by Gönül Dönmez-Colin
Lukas, a piano teacher in his mid-twenties, is hoping to meet the love of his life. One day, he meets the woman of his dreams, but promptly loses her telephone number. What he knows about her very limited: her name is Nathalie, she travels about the world working as a DJ, and has just bought herself a guide book for Normandy in a mall at the other end of the state. Lukas meets all sorts of people who offer to help him, including a butcher who asks him to work in the butcher shop -- after all, most of his customers are women. Then there is Alice, who is not so easy to get rid off. Just as he is getting ready to go to the beach at Trouville with Alice, Nathalie appears. Der Strand von Trouville is a light comedy about the affairs of the heart and was screened as part of the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999.
