The Sweet Escape

Middle-aged graphic artist Michel (Bruno Podalydès) is seized by a sudden crazy impulse and orders a canoe and paddles ... everything he needs for an adventure. His wife Rachelle (Sandrine Kiberlain) encourages him to set out alone on his escapades. So what if he s never rowed a boat in his life? Adventure is adventure! His big trip on the water turns out to be full of surprises and unexpected encounters. Sparkling with good humor and lighthearted charm, a delightful take on midlife crisis and pastoral adventure.
