Eternity and a Day(Mia aioniotita kai mia mera)

  • Dir: Theo Angelopoulos

  • Greece/France/Italy, 1998, Greek, 133mins, DCP

  • Cast: Bruno Ganz, Isabelle Renauld, Fabrizio Bentivoglio

An overdue Palme d’Or finally came on board Angelopoulos’ list of accolades, bestowed on his most personal journey with new tenderness and emotional intensity. In his unrivalled style of metaphysical reverie at its most accessible lies the haunting poetic valedictory of a dying author, Alexandre, who is immersed in memories of his wife, and wants one final chance to capture the lost moments of true happiness through his unexpected friendship with an abandoned Albanian boy. Soulful and hypnotic, this lyrical meditation on the meaning of life conjures mystically beautiful images of love and farewell, transcending a day into an eternity.
