Echo

Belgium, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Frédéric Roullier-Gall

An elderly couple take a train journey and along the way reminisce about the horrifying circumstances in which they first met. The impact of their scars is all too apparent. She is blind, he is deaf. Rather than being a film about grief, Echo is a film that resonates between past and present and celebrates the intimacy between the two soul-mates. It leaves a lasting impression about the banality of evil.
