Filming At CalahondaFilming has got underway at Playa Calahonda (pictured) for the filming of a new movie “All Inclusive” by the German director and writer Doris Dörrie, set in the 1970s and the present day. Yesterday’s filming took place out of site, in the small coves in the rocks next to Calahonda beach.

The film crew, actors and supporting staff number around 50 people in total, with a line of vans parked practically the whole length of the Balcon de Europa.

More filming is due to take place in Nerja and other parts of the Costa del Sol.

The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Doris Dörrie which entered the Spiegel best seller list at number 13 when it was released in the summer of 2010 – the plot summary is as follows:-

Apple has her hippie mother Ingrid to thank for her silly name along with a few neuroses, and a love of ironed blouses. Apple does not ever want her life to be as chaotic as it was in the summer of 1976, when Apple’s mother met Karl in Spain. Ingrid, the beach queen of Torremolinos, and Karl, a married bank employee, fell head over heels in love with one another – an affair which had unimaginable consequences. Thirty years later a grown-up Apple is stumbling from one love-life disaster to the next. Meanwhile her best friend Susi is looking for a holiday house in Spain. And Ingrid, now over sixty years old but still with the same rebellious free spirit, is going back to the scene of that disastrous summer love. They are all searching for the sunny side of life. But can you really book yourself some happiness just like a holiday, all inclusive?
