Ewige Jugend (Youth)

Feature Film | IT, FR, CH, GB 2015 | 118' | Subtitled German

Two longtime friends meet again in a Swiss luxury spa. One is a famous composer and conductor, the other one a motion picture director. They handle their advanced age in very different ways: while the musician even turns down an invitation from the Queen, only to be able to conduct his most famous composition once again, the filmmaker is frantically working on a new screenplay with his young writing staff. At the same time, the illustrious group of hotel guests – which includes a young star actor, an aging top football player, and a beauty queen – has their own issues to contend with. YOUTH is something like a mix of Thomas Mann’s THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN and Fellini’s 8 1/2, adapted to today’s celebrity circuit. Following his Oscar-winning picture THE GREAT BEAUTY, Paolo Sorrentino delivers another elegant meditation on ephemerality, love, and glory in his seventh feature film. Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel delightfully complement each other in the lead roles.
