Valeria Bruni Tedeschi,
A metaphysical mystery involving a university student's camera getting stolen, and the thief then committing suicide. Looking back upon the event, the situation comes to be questioned if it happened at all.
What if you lived your entire life in one day? And you'd have, but one time, to enjoy each moment: the first kiss, going to school, growing up, making love. In Marc de Cloe's Life in One Day, Benny and Gini fall head over heels for each other in a place where a lifetime indeed exists in a single day. But they can't fathom their love ever ending. They hatch a seemingly clever plan to game the system, and ultimately spend eternity together. Their destination? Hell. Well it all sounds good in theory. Written by
Wow, how come there are no reviews for this film?!...It is one of the most sensitive love stories I have ever seen on screen. The fantastic premises of living your life in just one day and experiencing every thing in life just once and that the Hell is a life with days repeating one after another (how actually life is) is generous, but also sets up high standards for the interpretation. In this fantastic world, two young lovers decide that they want to go to Hell, in order to live their love over and over again. And they go to Hell, but Hell is...hell. Searching, longing, trying to forget about the other.
This film succeeds in sewing such deeply emotional bits, both visual and auditory, that it will bring tears to anyone's eyes instantly. It is depressing in a comfortable way, but above all, it transposes so much delicacy and innocence! I loved it.
