Storyline

Meet the inhabitants of the "Casa di Riposa" in Milan, the world's first nursing home for retired opera singers, founded by composer Giuseppe Verdi in 1896. In his documentary film Tosca's Kiss, which has developed an underground cult following over the years and is a favorite among opera and music lovers worldwide, director Daniel Schmid has captured a world in which these wonderful singers (many of whom had significant careers on the opera stage) re-live and re-enact their triumphant roles of the glorious past. Tosca's Kiss is a touching and often hilarious film on the subject of aging and the power and timeless capacity of music to inspire. Written by Anonymous

Poignant Film About Theatre And Old Age
13 September 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

"Tosca's Kiss" is a documentary about elderly opera singers living in a specialized old people's home for opera singers and musicians. Now forgotten, but once noted performers remember their careers.

However the film is as much about old age as the theatre; as each performer introduced, talks about what they achieved in their careers; as well as what they couldn't achieve and the goals they couldn't achieve. In a holistic sense this film is about life.
