Imagine the beach of Barcelona in winter, a deserted place, on the edge of the vibrant city. Waves are coming and going. José, nearly ninety, is jogging through the sand and Paulina, an elderly lady, is singing Cuban boleros from her youth while she swims in the icy sea – her crutch waiting on the sand. Antonio, around eighty, is scrutinizing the ocean from his home-made cement throne on the coast’s jagged rocks. The three of them, towards the end of life, are part of an elderly community, whose passion draws them every morning to the sea.
The film follows these vivid, humorous and lovely individualists and becomes an accomplice to their loves and lives, as they challenge wind, weather and time. Consequently, the camera never leaves the beach, which appears to be their natural environment – a stage for an almost ritual encounter with the sea, whose rhythm determines the film.

“We fell in love with the wonderful beach-philosophers in this witty, entertaining and serene movie. We very much hope that these stories find their way into cinema.”

Jury of the Film Festival Max Ophuels Prize 2006, Germany

“In this very personal film, we encounter strong human beings who tell us that the last stage of life is just as important as the previous ones. Using the whole range of the cinematographic language, this really creative documentary is a tribute to life in a very poetic manner.”

Jury of Prix Europa 2006

“´Mañana al Mar` impressed the Jury with its extraordinary formal strength and expressiveness. Ines Thomsen’s vision, expressed in this poetic film, reveals a precise, emotional and freshly unpretentious perspective in intense pictures on modest stories, that occur every day unnoticed.”
