Fountain of Youth
Olav Astrup is a failed entrepreneur in his mid-twenties who has recently been refused contact with his newborn child. Without family or any form of social network, he turns to an eccentric gestalt therapist for guidance, and through their unconventional therapy sessions we get a glimpse into his innermost thoughts and feelings. FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH is a sharp and vulnerable portrayal of the obsession with success and image that defines our time. Paul Tunge once again displays his knack for making interesting and challenging films without a big budget.
