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

A Meditation On Life,Death & Art
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a loving study on the importance of love,life,death & art. Forever is a Dutch produced documentary,shot in & around the famed 'Pere Laichaise',the famed cemetery where the likes of Chopin, Oscar Wilde,Simone Signoret,Marcel Proust,and yes...Jim Morrison are buried. Despite the somewhat potential grim nature of it's subject matter,this is not a death obsessed film,but an affirmation of life & how temporary it is. This is a fine,loving film for open minded folk who are passionate about life & art (action/adventure fanciers need not bother--it's not going to be your cup of Budweiser). A bit of searching out will be a pre requisite for this one, as distribution is somewhat limited to art cinemas only (I guess the subtitles will be the biggest tip off).
