The Sweet Escape

15 yrs 85 minutes 2015 6.5

Michel, a middle-aged 3D amateur in Paris, dreams of something other than his comfortable and structured life. One day he sees a picture of a kayak and becomes obsessed with gliding carefree across the water. Encouraged by his wife Rachelle, he buys every conceivable piece of equipment that might be needed for a kayaking adventure and sets off, even though he has never even rowed a boat before. After a number of more or less successful incidents, he finds himself at an inn along the beach where he is deeply charmed by the owner and her staff, and suddenly new opportunities opens up for him.
