Film description

Three generations of men finally have some time to spend together. Włodek’s wife left, forcing him to call his son and grandson. Paweł and Maciek have lived apart for several years because of Paweł’s divorce and his music career. The ‘reunion’ is not an easy one, especially when everyone has a grudge from the past.

My Father’s Bike is acinematic ‘treatise’ about male friendship and the indestructible ties between father and son that not even a family tragedy can sever. Home anecdotes, memorabilia of childhood and shared memories can bring even the most bitter of adversaries together. Trzaskalski’s film is a comedy about the men’s world of musical fascinations that ripen only in their own clan, away from women.
