Interdimensional Romance

Interdimensional Romance

20 Episodes

The limits of our universe are no match for true love in these transcendent romances, in which passion conquers time and space, age and memory, and even death and the afterlife. Sprung from the dazzling imaginations of directors like Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH), Alain Resnais (JE T’AIME, JE T’AIME), John Carpenter (STARMAN), Hirokazu Kore-eda (AFTER LIFE), and Michel Gondry (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND), these rapturous, philosophically rich tales of love beyond the bounds of mortal existence ponder the limitless possibilities of soulful, star-crossed connection.
