“Camera – and action!” – The gang of six girls who are discovering a dusty garret are rolling. Charlotte, Jule, Lene, Kaya, Anna and Lisa want to tell a story. They brought the camera. But a story about what? About monsters and mummies in the forest, or perhaps about giant cats? They all speak at once until Anna proposes to make a film about their gang. About friendship and its trials. A quick scribble in the script – “We are a gang” – and the girls’ imaginary world and the “adult” film crew’s observations begin to merge.
The heroine of the story is Lisa (in “real” life too, since she bravely takes a spider from the camera girl’s back), though the others tease her because she is the youngest. She runs away and gets lost, her friends look for her, she’s found only after a long dark night. Their friendship is saved, the girls laugh and shout: “One for all and all for one!” Susanne Schulz made a film that’s as light-hearted and lively as these ten-year-old girls. “Die Bande” reminds us of the carefree world of childhood which isn’t so carefree when you’re in the middle of it. In addition to the sequences shot by the members of the gang, the film also shows situations when the girls argue, make up and monkey around. We are left with the impression that this is really the best gang in the world.

The film needs only a few delicate lines to visualise gliding joyfully on an ice rink, and the unrestrained enjoyment of moving fast – the elegant line as a stick figure. One of the studio’s earliest animated films.
