The Lovers From Axos / A day in the Lifes of Jorgos and Maria

2007 / Germany, Greece / 81min

In a village high in the mountains of Crete, 69-year-old Maria works at her loom. Watching Maria is her 73-year-old husband, Jorgos. Jorgos finds Maria so beautiful he occasionally invites passing strangers into the workshop to admire her. The love that bound Maria and Jorgos together when they were were young has endured 55 years and only deepened over time. But something has recently clouded the couple's happiness: Jorgos is seriously ill and could die any minute.
