Eternity and a Day ★★★★½

I will not attempt to review this film after a first viewing. All I can do is jot down a few impressions I had while watching, which will not make sense to anyone, but will remind me of the film.

The film consists of a series of beautifully orchestrated and choreographed tableaux.

It sings to those who long for something, that deep longing like a force of nature that guides one without making itself known.

It speaks to those who wonder what it is they can do in the world, affect it somehow, leave a footprint.

Ever so gently it leads those whose obsession is to celebrate life with words, notes or colour to the more down-to-earth dance on the beach, the dinner by the water, the arms of a loved one.


Part of the Sunday Mornings with Coffee series.
