Log Line

The story of two young women, Stella and Eleonora, a petrol pump, a bourgeois mother trying to interfere with their love affair and their desire to escape

Synopsis

 

Benzina is the tenderly dramatic story of two young girls not much over twenty. The story evolves around Stella and Eleonora (nicknamed Lenni), a petrol pump, a snobby, super-bourgeois mother hovering threateningly over Lenni’s life, the two girls’ love affair and their desire to escape. Then, night time and an accident, or maybe a crime… the desperate escape, like an odyssey, with the cumbersome corpse of the mother to get rid of without being seen.
Two opposing lives to escape from: Lenni, blonde hair, a conventional bourgeois life; Stella, green hair, a chaotic life and no family.
The petrol station? The happy oasis where they can always be found, without searching for them. The real escape is their love, simple, nearly childish, like the rainbow that appears and shivers in the petrol-covered mud puddles at the service station.
