The Time of Their Lives

ORIGINAL TITLE:
The Time of Their Lives
Storbritannia / 2009 / 68 min
DIRECTOR:
Jocelyn Cammack
A documentary about life, from the perspective of the centarians

THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES is a documentary about three old british women (87, 101 and 102, respectively), who despite their age and dwindling health, lead lives more active than most people a fraction of their age. Spending their days doing crossword puzzles, writing books and protesting the war in Iraq, the women speak about their lives and their thoughts about religion and the afterlife they may or may not soon have to face when the end comes. Slow paced and unassuming, THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES is a gem that is not to be missed.
