Two Women On A River

54 min.DK/Documentary

A poetic documentary about the unusual lives of two women, who both live on the river Seine in Paris. Kirsten was the Danish ambassador's wife. When her husband divorced her, she decided to change her way of living completely. She moved on a houseboat and worked with drug addicts. The second woman, Fernande, has lived on the river Seine all her life, and through the years has become an experienced veteran of the river. Despite their completely different backgrounds, life on the river has brought Kirsten and Fernande together in a close, life-affirming friendship.
