A man called Jake lives in the middle of the forest. He goes for walks in whatever the weather, and takes naps in the misty fields and woods. He builds a raft to spend time sitting in a loch. Drives a beat-up jeep to pick up wood supplies. He is seen in all seasons, surviving frugally, passing the time with strange projects, living the radical dream he had as a younger man, a dream he spent two years working at sea to realize. Winner of the Orizzonti FIPRESCI prize at Venice, Two Years at Sea is a quiet, unobtrusive film about the realisation of small dreams in a harsh landscape.
