If you are tracking the Oscar race on our site, you would know that ‘Youth’ figures quite prominently in our predictions chart. Especially, considering the Academy demographics — most of them are over 60 years old — ‘Youth’, which is a story of two old men reminiscing their youth, automatically becomes the movie to look out her. And add to that the talent behind the film, and you have a serious Oscar contender at hand. Below are the synopsis and trailer of the film.
Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Mick’s enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again.
