Storyline

Père-Lachaise - one of the world's most famous and beautiful cemeteries - is the final resting-place of a gifted group of artists from all eras and corners of the world. Some - such as Piaf, Proust, Jim Morrison and Chopin - are worshiped to this day. Others have fallen into oblivion, or are visited occasionally by a single admirer. In Forever we see the mysterious, calming and consoling beauty of this unique cemetery through the eyes of people of flesh and blood. Many come for their 'own' beloved: husbands, wives, family and friends. Others Honor 'their' artist by leaving behind a personal message or a flower. While admirers share with us the importance of art and beauty in their lives, the graveyard gradually reveals itself as a source of inspiration for the living. Death offers little consolation except for the passing of time, the melancholia of a moss-covered tomb, and the beauty and power of a piece of music, a poem or a painting Written by Cobos

Love & Death, hand in hand in a beautiful film
14 August 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

That it is possible to find so much signs of life in a cemetery is something striking in the carefully composed film of Heddy Honigmann. And so much consolation in beauty is also something I'll never forget from seeing the film. Beauty in the form of art, but also in the form of mementos left for the beloved death ones. Human voices telling stories are in this film sometimes as beautiful as a piece of music by Chopin!! Most of the characters in the film are very special and at the same time you feel a connection with almost all of them, as if they were your friends telling you a personal story while you're sitting with them in a park. Forever should be in the cinema for a long time, as long as all my friends can see it, and as long as they can tell their friends to see it and so on and so on...
