Storyline

How does creativity change when death is near? What counts when you must go? Diagnosed with a brain tumor and given three more years to live, the author of the film decides to overcome the solemnity of the issue and to explore the realm between Life and Death in order to meet some of its prominent inhabitants: famous artists who have had a traumatic brush with mortality and survived or who only have three more years to live. Death and illness - motor for creativity? Is the creative spirit in everything we do the armor against oblivion? Written by Razvan Georgescu

The film is very moving. It's a focus on creativity
28 February 2014 | by claulazSee all my reviews

The film is very moving. It's a focus on creativity, on the discussion about the creative process in different artistic media. Razvan Georgescu is focusing on the motivation to live with a purpose, not on the passing away or the moment of death. Even though the selection of artists is subjective, it looks just right, broad enough. I think this movie should get more attention. To me, it's important both for the optimistic approach and for the fact that it shows what a creative profession means, without lecturing about it. Those guys portrayed here are all very well established professionals, kept alive by the meaning of what they do.
