Lola is a cool nine-year-old with corkscrew curls who dreams of being a famous singer. She has a homemade stage in her bedroom and a rocket ship she sometimes sits in when she wants to fly to the stars. Some people in Lola's village are saying terrible things about her daddy Papai who's from Brazil and has dark skin, so Lola's family moves to the big city of Hamburg. In Hamburg kids come in all colors and Lola soon gets used to her new class. Papai is planning to open his own Brazilian restaurant, complete with music and a stage. Lola's grandma and grandpa have both a bookstore and a toddler, Lola's Aunt Lisbeth, who's only two. Lola's biggest wish is to find a new best friend at school. But Flo, who sits next to her, smells bad and teases her about frogs. Papai tells Lola to send her wish into the sky, tied to the end of a balloon. When she does, she gets back a mysterious message in a bottle. HERE COMES LOLA! is a colorful musical movie about a real girl with an oversize imagination. (In German with subtitles) –B.B.
