The Screen Guide

Retired organist and music teacher Andreas Borg discovers that his first love Claire, a woman he hasn't seen for almost 50 years, lives nearby - that she exists! He writes her a letter. Through poignant erotic flashbacks we start to understand the haunting quality of their early relationship. After almost 50 years their innocence still burns. A comic-tragic tale of love and lust, of tenderness and hope. A passionate reminder to live life to the full. A poignant homage to the human spirit.
