Eternity and a Day is a 1998 Greek film directed by Theo Angelopoulos and starring Bruno Ganz, Isabelle Renauld, and Fabrizio Bentivoglio. When poet Alexandre (Ganz) learns that he has a terminal illness, he begins a series of tasks to tie up loose ends in his life, including finding a new owner for his dog. Alexandre ends up saving a young boy from police officers who are chasing him. The boy tells him that he is trying to leave Greece and head to Albania. The two decide to take a bus to Albania, and Alexandre is surprised to discover that his love of poetry is reignited by his blossoming friendship with the boy. They share the bus with several musicians and another poet. As they reach Albania, the two part ways and discover themselves in ways they never thought possible. Alexandre's life begins to blur with the afterlife, and he says goodbye to the boy. Eternity and a Day won the Palme d'Or at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.moreless
