Orange Girl

Synopsis: THE ORANGE GIRL is about two young men's different paths to finding love. Jan Olav is struck as if by lightning the first time he sees the Orange Girl, and is sure he has found the love of his life. His infatuation is like nothing else: the sky turns round and round, the earth disappears beneath his feet. Nothing else matters. Georg has love served on a silver platter under a magic Easter sky in the Norwegian mountains, but he has difficulties understanding his own feelings, grasping what is happening to him. There are 20 years between these two love stories. Georg hears the story of his father Jan Olav's quest for the Orange Girl through a letter he receives on his 16th birthday. The letter helps him realize that he cannot let love slip through his fingers. Jan Olav's and Georg's stories are woven together through the letter. Both stories tell tales of chance encounters that change their lives. THE ORANGE GIRL is a love story that raises important questions about our human existence.

-Do you get many letters like that?

-No. It's from my dad.

-Is he sailing around the world?

-Not exactly.

-He must have plenty of time.


He's dead.

I'm sorry.

Don't be. It happened a long

time ago. I hardly remember him.

What about your mom?

-She's still alive.

-Doesn't she think about him, either?


-She visits his grave. With flowers.

-Don't you?




-Merry Christmas.

-To you, too.

I was worried

I'd never see you again.

But you did.

Shall we?

It's Christmas Eve. Angels

and all that. Anything is possible.

It's snowing.

-What fairy tale are you from?

-I'm actually quite real.

I have to go.

Merry Christmas.


I can't bear losing you again.

But I have to go home.

-To your fairy tale?

-No. To my family.

Before they ring Christmas in?

-When can I see you again?

-I don't know.

-How long can you wait?

-I don't know. Do I have to wait?


You have to wait.

Five minutes?

You have to be able to wait

for six months.

Six months?


That's just the way it is.

Sometimes in life

we have to be able to wait, OK?

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Jan Olav.

Jan Olav?

Did you see that?

We have this thing.

I give you

the world's most patient man.

Are you going to wait

for that comet all night?

-No, not all night.

-But tonight is your last chance.


May we join you?


-Have you had that telescope for long?

-I inherited it from my dad.

This is ridiculous!

What is it about?

That letter?

A girl he once met, that he's

searching for. The Orange Girl.

The Orange Girl?

Can I have a look now?

Hang on.

-Wait! Stop!

-I can't see anything.

-Stella, are you coming?

-In a minute!

Screw you and Microscope Boy!

Take it easy!

You almost broke it.

By the way, don't worry about Joakim.
