Lassie, the most famous dog in film history, is back on cinema screens this weekend. The heartwarming story of the inseparable friendship between a boy and his Collie dog is based on the wellknown original novel by Eric Knight. The movie is directed by Hanno Olderdissen.
Twelve-year-old Florian and his beloved collie Lassie are inseparable and best friends. When Florian's father loses his job, the family has to move into a smaller flat - no dogs allowed.
Florian is devastated and has to give Lassie away. Lassie is placed in the hands of Count von Sprengel, who travels to the North Sea with her and his exuberant granddaughter Priscilla (12).
When the count's mean caretaker starts treating Lassie badly, she takes the opportunity to escape and begins an adventurous journey across Germany, always in search of Flo.
But Lassie is not the only one who has set off on a journey. Flo also can't stand it any longer and starts looking for his dog. The two can't be beaten that easy!
Flo's best friend is his Collie Lassie. When his family is forced to give the dog away, Flo is heartbroken. But Lassie isn’t easily separated from Flo and embarks on an adventurous journey across Germany, a journey back to her beloved friend Flo.
The heartwarming story of this indestructible friendship will resonate not only with pet lovers, but also with those who have not forgotten to be children.
Prorom will release Lassie Come Home in Romanian and Hungarian cinemas starting March 13th.
