52. SOLOTHURNER FILMTAGE, DIE 21 UND 24 JANUAR 2017

ALMOST THERE tells the story of three men who embark on a journey in search of meaning and happiness in the autumn of their lives. Bob swaps his safe home for a campervan and tries to find the though guy inside himself in the barren Californian desert. Drag queen and stand-up comedian Steve is fed up of England and makes amends with his past between Benidorm’s concrete towers. And Yamada rediscovers his smile by reading stories to children in Tokyo.


ALMOST THERE erzählt von drei Männern, die sich im Herbst ihres Lebens nochmals auf die Suche machen. Bob tauscht sein sicheres Zuhause gegen ein Wohnmobil und forscht in der unwirtlichen Wüste Kaliforniens nach dem Kerl in sich. Dragqueen und Standup-Comedian Steve hat genug vom garstigen England und versöhnt sich in den Betonburgen Benidorms mit seiner Vergangenheit. Und Yamada gewinnt durch das Vorlesen von Kinderbüchern in Tokyo sein Lächeln zurück.
