COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Durant huit années, Roland Colla rencontre trois personnes qui essaient de changer leur vie : un berger solitaire qui s'est retiré dans les montagnes de la région de Sarajevo ; un psychiatre cubain, amateur de hard rock, qui tente de s'échapper du système ; une mère célibataire suisse qui veut à tout prix s'installer à l'étranger. Une étude au long cours et en profondeur des luttes qu'ils mènent pour réaliser leurs rêves.

"I dream of more air", is the way Emilio, a Cuban psychiatrist and hard rock fan who suffers under Cuba’s system, describes it. He is referring to that long- ing for a faraway place where people can live in greater freedom – and possibly even cope with themselves more easily! It is a longing shared by all three people lmed by Rolando Colla over eight years. After the war, the Bosnian Enver retreat- ed to the mountains to live as a shep- herd. There he waits in isolation, rst for a woman and later, as time passes, only for death. And Andrea, a single mother and nurse, has always longed to move far away from Switzerland. Now newly in love, she wants to start a new life in Turkey. Colla visits Enver, Emilio and Andrea several times over the course of the eight years, generally whenever their lives have taken a surprising turn. In the lm their stories are interwoven. DasbessereLebenistanderswoevokes the way we wrestle with our own dreams and movingly asks the question of what is required at all for a good life – and whatrolefateplays.
