Er und sie

A Film by Marco Gadge

Synopsis

HE AND SHE

Thomas is on his way to a life that includes only himself and his girlfriend… but when she breaks up with him, the dream goes up in smoke.
Then he meets Annemarie at a lonely rest stop. As he tells the quirky old woman about his failed relationship, he comes to realize that, whatever happens, however dark and horrible things seem, there are always reasons to jump into life with both feet.

    Marco Gadge

    Marco came late to movie making. After a training as mechanic and an employment as an exacavator operator, he decided to take the long and weary road to become a filmmaker. The shortfilms and documentaries that he created over the years have screened at over sixty film festivals around the world. The short feature „The Package“ won - among other awards - the main prize of the ECU Paris and the gold medal Brno.
