Original title: Hier kommt Lola
In this award-winning film, nine-year-old Lola seems to have it all—in her dreams, at least. In her fantasy world, she leads a fabulous lifestyle as pop star Jacky Jones, who rides in stretch limos and plays concerts for thousands of adoring fans.  In reality, however, she discovers that the one thing missing in her life is a true best friend. At first, Lola resents being forced to sit with her classmate Flo, who smells of fish and teases Lola about her fear of frogs. But after spending time together, Lola comes to learn an important lesson about friendship. Themes: friendship, fantasy vs. reality.

Director's Bio: 
An acknowledged specialist of children’s films (award-winning "Emil and the Detectives", “Bibi Blocksberg”), director Franziska Buch trains her competent eye on author Isabel Abedi’s "Lola" adventures, which have been translated into 13 languages. With lots of cool songs and snappy rhythms driving the film onward, "Here Comes Lola" finds just the right tone to get its message across to young audiences: that life is an adventure that is sometimes hard but that can be mastered!
