Lora (Lora)

(2006, feature, 35mm, color, 118 minutes, 1:1,85)

LORA is a romantic film with dramatic turns, great music, and humor, as the only chance to get through the hardest times.
Twenty-something Lora is going through a difficult period in her life. So is Geri. He lives the life of a misfit, drinks a lot, plays his saxophone, and hangs out in the city�s nightlife...
Three years earlier Lora lost her boyfriend David, a trendy restaurant owner, in a fatal motorbike accident.
David�s younger brother Geri has always been attracted to Lora but stepped back for his brother. They haven�t seen each other since the tragedy.
Three years later Geri and his band play at a charity concert, where he accidentally catches sight of Lora, who runs a wine-tasting in the concert breaks. Geri wants to see Lora again, but she is very different now; she doesn�t want anything or anyone to make her recall the painful past. Lora can�t really resist Geri though, and gradually opens up. She finds a helping hand and a loving friend, and Geri the love of his life. Can they be happy in the shadow of their past?
