"Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Requiem for a Friend” is the foundation for this marvelous production of mature emotion and deep wisdom; few films have been able to explore the issues surrounding death with such grace and intelligence." Phil Hall, filmthreat.com (5 stars)

SYNOPSIS
1908, Paris. Over three fever-dream nights in the Hotel Biron, poet Rainer Maria Rilke encounters the ghost of his good friend, artist Paula Modersohn-Becker, who died shortly after giving birth to her first child. In response to this haunting, Rilke writes his epic prose lament, "Requiem for a Friend", as a tribute to Paula. One hundred years later, three women - a painter, an actress and a dancer - and a theatre director prepare to stage Rilke's "Requiem" in Berkeley California as an avant garde production. The director's real life becomes mysteriously entangled in the metaphors of Rilke's prose when a young Rilke-obsessed drama critic insists on covering their upcoming performance.
