Tomorrow Is Always Too Long
(GBR /GER 2014, 82’, English)
Audience Award KINO DER KUNST 2015
A cinematic declaration of love, a city portrait and a musical about Glasgow. Developed with various communities, the film is funny, sentimental and constantly surprises. Everyday urban life is the setting for an existential journey that takes us from birth and youth to issues with the prison system and then to the nursing home. Completely natural amateur actors sing – better than might be expected – songs specifically composed for the film by Cate Le Bon, accompanied by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
