Directed by Francis Ford Coppola • 2007 • United States, Romania
Starring Tim Roth, Alexandra Maria Lara, Bruno Ganz
After a decade of artistic silence, Francis Ford Coppola returned to the realm of his mastery with this visually sumptuous, highly personal tale about growing young. In 1930s Romania, lightning strikes suicidal linguistics professor Dominic Matei (Tim Roth) so close to death that he ages backwards from seventy to forty in a week, attracting the attention of the world—and the Nazis. Now he’s on the run with a new love for life, but with no hope of knowing his phenomenal fate.
