Germany 2023 – Director: Pia Lenz – Original language: German – Subtitles: English

Does “eternal love” exist in the 21st century? When you see Eva and Dieter, you think: yes! The two have been a couple for almost 70 years. Together they have experienced ups and downs and always maintained respect and affection for each other. Now Eva is ill, it is time to take a look back – and prepare for the next step at the same time. Beautiful, intense, sad. A true love story. Anja Klauck


In cooperation with Katholische Akademie in Bayern
