Cast & Crew
Sumptuous, sincere and built on aging bones, "Youth" is a wonder of a film, a look back at life's sprawling possibilities, dark corners and aspirations.
Age is more than just a number, Youth tells us. What really matters, though, is whether you're going to let that number define you.
Watching Youth, you'd swear Fellini had risen from his grave and returned to make another movie.
Youth is a meditation on aging, on friendship, on love, loss, wisdom, disillusionment, pain.
Absolutely beautiful and sometimes maddening while never offering easy answers.
This is a work of gorgeous, eye-popping visual inventiveness with a radically bananas plot.
Film is a medium that consecrates memory, which makes it an especially apt metaphor in a movie about two old men.
