Storyline

Resonating with vibrant memories and silent echoes of a shared life, the old house is somehow connected to "C", a sensitive composer who is hesitant of leaving it, while his loving wife "M", on the other hand, is keen on moving out, having an indecipherable but grim premonition of danger. Sadly, disaster soon strikes, and C's untethered spectre which detaches from the lifeless body, rises from the mortician's table, and in a swift decision, decides to linger in this dimension to faithfully follow the grieving M back to the old house. As silent as a shadow and as invisible as the air, C's unappeasable phantom observes M's denial and depression gradually turn to acceptance and even hope, as time unravels, moving forward through the decades. In this earth, man struggles to leave his legacy behind. Is this the way to immortality? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

M: When I was little and we used to move all the time, I'd write these notes and I would fold them up really small. And I would hide them.
C: What'd they say?
M: They're just things I wanted to remember so that if I ever wanted to go back, there'd be a piece of me there waiting.

The power of memory
20 September 2017 | by viniduraoSee all my reviews

What a powerful and sad movie. I read in a review that the movie has no story at all, but it is exactly the opposite of that. This movie transpires stories, it is about stories. A Ghost Story is pure art, a beautiful well done movie that i will remember. Just watch!

8.2/10
