“You won’t be able to take your eyes off of the screen. If there were any justice, the film would get nominated for Best Costume Design and Best Cinematography”—NYC Movie Guru.  “This beautiful depiction of ill-fated love is both haunted and haunting“—Unseen Films. New from Waterville’s own Shadow Distribution, and MIFF Midlife Achievement pioneer Jos Stelling, THE GIRL AND DEATH is the “Winner of Three Golden Calves from the Netherlands Film Festival including Best Picture, Best Sound Design and Best Cinematography. With a beloved presence in Russia, Italy and throughout Eastern Europe, Dutch-born Stelling has received wide praise and won many awards for his films over the years including THE POINTSMAN, THE ILLUSIONIST, THE FLYING DUTCHMAN and DUSKA. Stelling’s unique cinema is based on idiosyncratic humor, stunning images and large emotions. Like the great classic plays of Anton Chekhov and poetry of Alexander Pushkin, THE GIRL AND DEATH is a story about a love obstructed by materialism, wealth and the threat of death in a time that seems to exist miraculously outside of time.”—IndieNYC. Unrated. In Russian, German and French with English subtitles. 124 Min.
