The best part of this trailer for Jan Tenhaven‘s Autumn Gold is the shot of a 100 year-old guy painting a nude model in her 20s. The idea, of course, is that no one has to succumb to “old age.” We can all be wily and spirited and loose right to the end. Clint Eastwood obviously gets this.
Gold has a showing on Saturday, 10.23, at Santa Monica’s Aero theatre as part of the German Currents Festival. It will also play the following day (10.24) at San Francisco’s Castro theatre as part of a series called “Berlin and Beyond.”
