A rolling room with windows to look outside that broadens my body and covers me like a shell at the same time. A machine whose handling is sensuous, to which i link myself. That reacts to me and which i can play with. A perfect place for dreams and desires. Big emotions, melancholy. Robust shield, soft seats. A hideout, a place for a secret. „Rolling Love Affair“ is about the story of my golden 79er Opel Kadett which goes back into my childhood. Using 8mm material of that time (including original sound), the film follows the question why there were two golden Kadetts of the same model in my family: one belonging to my grandfather, the other to my godmother. Since she died I am driving her car. The autobiographical narration is linked to a portrait of five other protagonists who own an old Opel, too. While driving around the two men and three women talk about their relationship to their personal Opel. „Where love is tumbling down...“, my mother uses to say. And about the Kadett she knows even more to tell.
