LIFE COULD BE BEAUTIFUL
A documentary about a (film maker) couple who figures out their summer plan: biking through France for three month, following the diary of Andrzej Bobkowski, a polish writer, who did the exact same bike trip back in the 1940 ́s. They film their research first but end up questioning who they are for each other. Life could be so beautiful if there wouldn ́t be fears, wrong expectations and all kind of frustrations. A road trip about a couple fighting for who they want to be, told with a lot of humour.
