THE FLOWER OF LIFE
Directors: Claudia Abend, Adriana Loeff
Aldo and Gabriella have been married for almost 50 years, have three children and several grandchildren, and prepare to live their old age in peace. But something is not right. Those young people who were passionate about each other in the 50s, who swore to love and accompany each other until the last day, are estranged. Their personalities, their interests and their ways of seeing the world are no longer the same. And when they turn 80 they begin to wonder: why are we together? The Flower of Life is a fairy tale facing reality, a universal story about love - and heartbreak - relationships, and the challenges of aging.
