It is dawn of April 25 1974 when Marco, a 25-year old Italian and Victor, his Portuguese friend leave Paris in a yellow Citroen 2CV for Lisbon. The Portuguese capital was liberated the night before after one of the most durable dictatorships ever seen in Europe. Urged on by a pressing need to take part in a unique historical event and meet new people, the boys decide that the journey cannot be completed successfully without Victor’s ex, Claire also taking part.
She is willing to take a short vacation from her day-to-day life that includes a husband and a small child and so the trio depart. The 2CV is a vehicle that over the years has taken on almost mythical connotations. They pass through wonderful countryside and a million difficulties while the radio is playing the film’s musical score: all the ingredients for an unforgettable experience.
Each member of the party brings his and her own ideals, feelings and motivations for this journey that also becomes an internal one of discovery. When they get to Lisbon and see the desire for freedom becoming reality inspires these three that the time has finally come to pass from a prolonged adolescence to full adulthood.
From the novel "Alla rivoluzione sulla due cavalli" by Marco Ferrari.
