Eternity And A Day
Winner of the Palme d'Or, the Cannes Film Festival 's highest prize, Theo Angelopoulos's deeply moving odyssey centers on Alexander (Wings of Desire's Bruno Ganz), a celebrated Greek writer who, while terminally ill, focuses on one last idyllic day. A poetic, haunting, and abundantly beautiful film, Eternity And A Day weaves an emotionally charged tale of love and life, where the past and the present come together to create a f-rceful yet eloquent message of hope for the future.
Embarking on a dreamy and transcending voyage to relive an idealized time with his wife, now deceased, at their beloved seaside retreat, his day is interrupted as he happens upon a troubled eight-year-old boy whose future plight brings new meaning to Alexander's own journey into the past. Crossing paths at a special moment in time, the two strangers, man and boy, share a poignant life experience as one journey ends and a new one begins.
