“Marco: a friend from Simonis” is a short documentary portrait of a dying man who’s full of life, a bittersweet story about music, ambition, success, and life.

Marco plays guitar and sings to the passers-by in Simonis metro in Brussels since 1984, even knowing that his end is approaching. Two heart-attacks and cancer shook-up his bohemian busker’s life, but he didn’t give up music or painting. “I thank all the Saints for the life I lived” – he says with a bitter smile.
