Youth Without Youth (2008)
Thursday 3rd April 2008
Directed by Academy Award® winning Coppola (The Godfather Trilogy) the film stars Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Rob Roy) as Dominic Matei, an ageing professor of linguistics who survives a cataclysmic event to find his youth miraculously restored. Dominic's physical rejuvenation is matched by a highly evolved intellect, which attracts the attention of Nazi scientists, forcing him into exile. While on the run, he reunites with his lost love, Laura (Alexandra Maria Lara), and works to complete his research into the origins of human language - but when his research threatens Laura's safety, love forces Dominic to make some tough decisions.
Youth Without Youth, released by Pathé from 21st April 2008, is based on the novella of the same name by Romanian author Mircea Eliade and is Francis Ford Coppola's first directed film since 1997's The Rainmaker.
Beautifully crafted, with stunning cinematography, Youth Without Youth marks the return of a master filmmaker, in top form. Dubbed The Godfather after his world famous trilogy, Francis Ford Coppola does something altogether different here as he fuses the classical approach of his early years with today's contemporary digital universe.
