Jacqueline Zünd – Almost There (2016)

Three men, three continents: Bob, an American, Steve, a Brit and Yamada, who is Japanese, dare to take on new beginnings and personal journeys – in the autumn of their life. Impressive cinema with images that remind us of the loneliness and melancholy in Wim Wenders’ films.

Quote:
It’s evening in an empty parking lot, and we see the motorhome in which a retired man will go on a long journey and leave his old life behind. He runs through a checklist of all the things that need to be done before he leaves his hometown. Although clearly a metaphor for taking stock as the end of life approaches, it is used with subtlety. ALMOST THERE is a portrait of three men searching for happiness and a meaningful existence in the autumn of their lives. The camera records them with patience and an eye for detail as they talk about the choices they made – they may not have been easy choices, but they brought many good things later in life. We see the American traveling across his country, a British drag queen doing a standup comedy routine in Benidorm, Spain, and a Japanese gentleman reading books to children – beaming with pride, he describes how a teacher paid him a compliment. It’s only now that he has come to understand how to get along with children.

Quote:
A sensitive and moving portrayal of three men facing the relentless passing of time.
