A Different Love Song

“Heavy and tired with a woman on a balcony:
‘Stay with me’. Roads die as well
as people do; either quietly or suddenly they break

stay with me. I want to be you…”

The Afternoon routine of a very loving elderly couple in their late 70’s. A love story, but of different sorts, unlike anything usually depicted on screen.
A short fiction film, a cinematic adaptation of Yehuda Amichai’s poem “A different Love Song”.
Winner of the “Best Short Film” award at Marbella festival, Spain.
