Storyline

Life's Waltz explores old age, loss, and love. Betty is a widow who stays active while living at a retirement community. Even with the loss of her husband Ed, she finds joy and purpose in playing the piano, gardening, and making the most of each day. Bob and Dorothy, also at the same retirement community, are a married couple with a unique sense of humor toward old age. After many decades together, they are still laughing about their transition to a retirement community, their current health issues, and their love for each other. David is a 25-year-old inside of a 77-year-old's body. He resists what he feels is the confinement of a retirement home life and instead chooses to live on his own in a mobile home park. By commemorating his wife Kinuko and their love, he offers a profound perspective on dealing with loss and change as we grow older.

A very well done and feel-good short documentary with a light-hearted message.
23 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

A very charming look into the lives of a select number of senior citizens, each with a life story of his/her own. The characters are both extremely likable and relatable. They help us understand that old age is just another chapter in the book of life. Each person takes it on in his/her own style. The character Dorothy, at the end of the film, remarks to the filmographer with a smile, "You'll be here one day too. It's not so bad." I guess a sense of humor never goes away.

It's amazing to me that, in just 10 minutes, I felt a connection to each of the characters and their stories. A very well done and feel-good short documentary with a light-hearted message.
