Life is a Flower (2010)

Original title: Elu on lill

Documentary Duration 25:00

Documentary about the meeting between two grand masters, artist Evald Okas and photographer Kalju Suur, during which they portrait a young model and have a discussion about life and art. 94-year-old Okas and 82-year old Suur are full of life and creative artists who get still inspired from the beauty of a woman. The two old artists run around the young naked woman as representing a philosophical vignette about the flourishing and withering of life, an existential etude with erotic attachments.
