SYNOPSIS


“For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been given to us, the ultimate test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.” (Rainer Maria Rilke)
   

DEATH AND THE MAIDEN is a cinematic radiography of a love relationship, followed over an extended period, with its complex dynamics and paradoxes, focusing on how time, subjectivity of memory and family history inform our experience of intimacy. 

 

A couple in crisis, PAUL (23) and RADU (53) take a walk down the memory lane, with the help of a filmmaker friend and her small crew, in an attempt to make sense of their explosive relationship.
