A beautifully told tale of falling in love in the German countryside.
Alex is running out of chances, so her parents send her to work for the summer at a horse ranch deep in the countryside. It is literally her worst nightmare as she is forced to work hard and care for something other than herself. When the rather shy Kathy arrives she ignites feelings in Alex that go beyond friendship. As the girls grow closer, Alex learns to care for the beautiful horses and with her newfound maturity begins to feel hopeful for the future.
Drawing out nuanced performances from her leads and expertly capturing the stunning rural landscape, OF GIRLS AND HORSES is a beautifully filmed coming of age tale and Monika Treut's finest film to date.
