| Synopsis

Two ancient lovers, Orpheus and Eurydice, strive to remain connected forever. Even against death. And their love earns a place in eternity.

Director’s note
One of the best known ancient myths, that of Orpheus and Eurydice, comes to life through this contemporary cinematic version, inspired by Norman McLaren’s masterpiece “Pas de deux”. The greatness of Orpheus and Eurydice’s love overcomes death, transcending the boundaries of the natural world. The two lovers travel through time and appear to us like shadows only to remind the viewer that life, like the cinematic medium itself, is nothing but a reflection, a dream within a dream.
