100UP

(100UP)

The joy of another day and an age in treble figures. The protagonists of this story are united by the knowledge that each stage of life has its own beauty.

The film indirectly seeks to answer the question: Are you still happy? The diverse destinies of senior citizens from all corners of the planet are illustrated in detailed scenes from their daily routine, mixed with memories of the things they have experienced so far. A sexologist from New York plays recordings of his television debates, a former professional drummer still holds his drum sticks firmly in his hands, and a vigorous doctor still helps his younger colleagues. These are just some of the stories in which the filmmakers prove that age is just a number and that indomitable optimism is half the battle when it comes to health.
