Anni and Jasmin are a fictional lesbian couple from the German television series, Gute Zeiten Schlecte Zeiten which translates to Good Times, Bad Times in English.
Anni (Linda Marlen Runge) is a lesbian girl who comes to Berlin to study and become a sound engineer. She is looking for a place to live, particularly in a shared apartment because she cannot afford to live alone with what she currently earns. By a fluke of fate, she meets Pia, a girl who, along with her flatmate Jasmin is looking for someone who will rent the third quarter of the apartment and this is how she ends up moving in to live with them.
Anni is a very confident girl who is quite sure of what she wants out of life. From a very young age, she became independent because her parents did not take well at all of her coming out of the closet so she had to leave home in order to be herself, working and studying most of the time.
Music is her life and she is in fact a very good songwriter, although she is not interested in selling or sharing her songs, this facet for her is something a little more private. She loves tattoos and hates superficial people, something that combined with her extreme honesty will cause many problems with Jasmin.
Jasmin’s (Janina Uhse
) life has been hard. She grew up in a foster family and her father sexually abused her. This leads her to seek out her biological mother and they form a closer relationship but they are not very attached.
She had a relationship with Dominik, another friend of the group, but in the end they ended because they wanted different things in life and they agreed it was too late for their relationship. Then Jasmin met Kurt Le Roy, a rock star. Kurt and Jasmin go away to Las Vegas and get married while caught up in the euphoria of things and signed a contract to record together “Kurt and Jasmin: Behind the scenes” a reality show that will have cameras following the two constantly.
Jasmin is a person who is willing to achieve her dreams at any and all costs. She is a model and wants to launch her career so she hopes that the reality show could put her in the public eye to boost her career once and for all. She loves the fame, the feasts and all the benefits of life that being recognized by the public brings.
They say that there is a thin line between love and hate and in the case of Anni and Jasmin, this is a phrase which could be used perfectly to define their story. These two girls couldn’t be more different if they tried. Jasmin cares what people think about her and she is always trying to show the best side of herself. Anni, meanwhile, is honest to sickening levels, she is not politically correct and she could give a BLEEP what others think so she is going to say to you exactly what she thinks to your face without dressing it up.
It is not surprising then that when these two begin to live in the same space, there are sparks flying everywhere. The truth is that they can barely tolerate to be in the same place a couple of minutes with each other before a fight will start. The two eventually begin to develop a completely genuine friendship, because in reality, their senses of humor combine quite well and the two love to do things together. As time goes by Anni is starting to feel attracted to Jasmin but there is a problem that is seemingly international for lesbians: Jasmin is straight and if that wasn’t enough, she is also married.
From this moment, we will begin seeing all kinds of interesting situations between the two. Is Anni actually in love with Jasmin or does she feel attracted to her because she is a girl she cannot have? Things get complicated when the girls kiss. Apparently it is clear that anything that happens between them would be simply fun but how can the two be sure of it? Could it be that Jasmin is not as straight as she thought or is she simply having a good time?
