An Argument for Old Age

year: 2013
director: Edgar Honetschlager
cast: Edgar HonetschlŠger, Pauline Schźrz

ÔIf you drink this juice, you'll make it to a hundredŐ says the young man to his old neighbor, who replies: ÔI got to a hundred without this juice, didnŐt I?Ő Humor and wit form the basis of a friendship that bridges a huge age difference and allows the centenarian to resume: ÔFor me the best part of life is being oldŐ. A travelling artist, painter and filmmaker has a centenarian neighbour. The relationship between this man in his forties and the solitary old lady with a wicked sense of humour gradually becomes a kind of elective kinship. Their discussions, interrupted and picked up again over the years, form the fabric of this personal, tender and surprising film. A calm observation on the inescapable power of the passage of time.
