by Luca Ferri

A couple of lovers lives together an entire century of life while objects, trends, movies at the movie theatre and architects follow one another in a slow but inexorable decline towards the horror.

Their obsession with the octagonal knobs of the coffeemakers and with the anonymous design objects will accompany them along the passing by of the decades.

Aging and gradually losing their force, but never the clarity of mind to accept this decline, they finally decide to exclude the world, darkening and sealing the shutters of their home and withdrawing into themselves, leafing through the pages of old encyclopedias of extinct animals.

«A humorous exploration of a couple’s years together weaves together with an air of melancholy to create a moving piece that is exquisitely realised» Laurence Boyce (Cineuropa)
