Eternity and a Day ★★★★½

March Around the World 2017 Challenge #15 Greece

"How long will tomorrow last?"

An old writer, staring headlong at it own mortality, says his farewells, saves an orphan boy, and attempts to reconcile with memories of his past. As he prepares for his long journey, he is taken back to a day of celebration at the sea shortly after the birth of his daughter.

Beautifully shot and scored, one of the saddest and most joyful films I have seen. It is about both letting go and holding on. About realizing that, like The Free Besieged, life will always remain unfinished.
