Original title: Sommer in Orange
German title: Sommer in Orange
Summer 1980: The Berlin Bhagwan follower Amrita moves with her children, Lili and Fabian, twelve and nine years old, and the other residents of their shared apartment to an old farm house south of Munich. This is the end of the peaceful tranquility in the typical Bavarian village of Talbichl, as red-orange-colored, flowing robes collide with traditional costumes, primal scream therapy and free love with shooting club rules and conservative values. Above all, Lili’s life gets properly mixed up. She wants nothing more than being normal, like all the other children here. And while at home, she still wears orange trousers, eats vegetarian food and talks left-wing alternative slang, at school, she wears a blue pleated skirt, prays the Lord’s Prayer and joins the brass band. But how long will Lili be able to keep her double life a secret? The comedy is based on the childhood memories of screenwriter Ursula Gruber and her brother Georg Gruber, one of the producers of this film. Both grew up in a Bhagwan commune south of Munich.
