Class trip to Amrum – that sounds like a lot of fun. Even if the start is a bit bumpy. And then there is Rémi.
Berlin – Lotta is really looking forward to the upcoming class trip: Experiencing the island of Amrum with her best friends without her parents – how cool! But her mother Sabine thwarts Lotta’s plans. Lotta’s father, of all people, suggested her as a companion for the excursion.
The film “Alles Tschaka mit Alpaka” – created in co-production with ZDF, among others – is based on the fairly successful children’s and youth book series “Lotta-Leben” by author Alice Pantermüller and illustrator Daniela Kohl. Together they have published a whole series of volumes about the comprehensive student Lotta (with titles like: “No drama without a llama”).
After the flamingos, the alpacas
And there is already a cinematic approach: In the summer of 2019, “My Lotta Life – Alles Bingo mit Flamingo!” by director Neele Leana Vollmar was released. Actors included Oliver Mommsen, Laura Tonke and Meggy Hussong (born 2007) as Lotta. The three are also included in the new adaptation of the Lotta theme that is now starting. Martina Plura is directing this time, her twin sister Monika Plura was the camerawoman.
The new French classmate Lotta and her gang, the wild rabbits, won’t let go of Amrum: the boy’s name is Rémi. And Lotta doesn’t yet know what to make of the fact that her best friends, Cheyenne and Paul, get along so well with this Rémi. The (G)Lämmer-Girls of the highly conceited Berenike are also present on Amrum.
As if that weren’t enough, Cheyenne’s little sister Chanell, who suddenly disappears, and a class teacher with the flattering name Frau Kackert are also involved. And a mysterious riddle that still awaits its solution.
Mein Lotta-Leben – Alles Tschaka mit Alpaka, D 2022, 88 min, FSK from 6, by Martina Plura, with Meggy Hussong, Oliver Mommsen, Yola Streese dpa
