Dream girl (2012)

Director Oliver Schwarz

For most of his life, Dirk has been searching for the woman of his dreams. After several failed relationships and a burnout, he finally seems to have found the love of his life, Jenny: the perfect match at first sight – but somehow fundamentally different…

The short film ‘DREAM GIRL’ takes the viewer into a world between imagination and reality that is both strange and surprisingly familiar.
