Interview: Serge Roetheli, Director John Davies of ‘The 25,000 Mile Love Story’

Chicago – One of the oddest feats of the early millennium was a five year odyssey by endurance athlete Serge Roetheli, who set out to run across five continents – in the equivalent of one marathon a day – with his wife Nicole following along via motorcycle. The film of this journey is “The 25,000 Mile Love Story,” directed by John Davies.

The quest, which is tempered by the fact that Serge and Nicole – who live in Switzerland – took it on partially for charity, is a crazy quilt of extreme conditions, daily camping and gallons of Coca-Cola (which Serge insisted was better than water for running). The adventure is interrupted by disease, accidents and weather conditions, but the tenacity of the athlete and his willing mate does fascinate in an expressive and almost dreamy way.
