BIBI & TINA - GIRLS VS. BOYS

It’s summertime, and that means summer camp! Tina and Bibi are attending the camp as well as a number of students from an international partner school. The highlight will be a “Geocaching” competition, a modern day treasure hunt between different teams.

But one of the boys, Urs, stirs up trouble and creates a rivalry between the girls and boys, and now even Tina’s friend Alex wants to be on the boys’ team rather than with his friends Bibi and Tina. Their team is instead joined by François, a charming student from France.

Urs and his team are pulling out all the stops in order to beat the girls and when Urs provokes and insults Bibi harshly, she casts a spell on him, transforming him into the weirdest sort of bloke. But her powers are suddenly gone – and Urs is left with a giant head. Bibi is devastated: what’s a witch who can’t perform magic? Bibi and Tina try and get to the bottom of it, and are eventually pressed for time when there’s a huge forest fire and her magical powers are the only thing that can prevent a catastrophe…


Detlev Buck was born in 1962 and made his fame as an actor, director and screenwriter at the age of 22. His short film TIME TO KNOCK OFF quickly became a cult classic. His first feature as a director was RABBIT FEVER, which won the Bavarian Film Prize. He followed this up with NO MORE MR. NICE GUY, which garnered an honorable mention at the Berlinale and two German Film Awards. His next film, JAILBIRDS, which he directed and starred in, made stars of the two female leads, Heike Makatsch and Marie Bäumer. In 2004, he won the German Film Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role in BERLIN BLUES (dir: Leander Haußmann). His other works as a director include: TOUGH ENOUGH and HANDS OFF MISSISSIPPI, both of which won German Film Awards in several categories, SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT, MEASURING THE WORLD, and all three BIBI & TINA films.
