A one-off screening not to be missed! The film Youth starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Alex Macqueen and Jane Fonda will be shown at a once-only performance in Nicosia on Wednesday.
The film is directed by Paolo Sorrentino, who is known for his Oscar winning film The Great Beauty (2013) and This Must be the Place (2011).
Youth premiered at the 2015 Cannes festival where it received positive reviews. It is a film about life and death, loneliness and friendship, youth and age.
Fred (Michael Caine) and Mick (Harvey Keitel), two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Mick’s enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants to hear him conduct again at all costs.
The film screening is being organised by the Rotary Club, the University of Nicosia, Roteract Club Nicosia-Ledra, and the Volunteer Doctors of Cyprus.
Net proceeds will go towards helping Syrian refugees in Greece.
