Recommended by Don Burnshouse, a sweet film about a Greek poet and his reflections, joys and sorrows, at the end of his life. On his last day he is illuminated by his encounter with an Albanian refugee.

New York Times said ”Eternity and a Day” won an overdue Palme d’Or at Cannes International Film Festival for the Greek director Theo Angelopoulos, whose style of drifting metaphysical reverie is at its most accessible here.”

Stay for discussion of the film and DVD extras including an excellent interview with the director.
