Announce #6 Youth Without Youth

YOUTH WITHOUT YOUTH stars Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Rob Roy,) as Dominic Matei, a professor whose life changes after a cataclysmic incident during the dark years prior to World War II. Becoming a fugitive, he is pursued through far-flung locations including Romania, Switzerland, Malta and India.
"I was excited to discover in this tale by Eliade, the key themes that I most hope to understand better: Time, consciousness and the dream- like basis of reality,” said Coppola. “For me it is indeed a return to the ambitions I had for my work in cinema as a student."

The film also stars Alexandra Maria Lara (Downfall, The Tunnel), Bruno Ganz (Downfall, The American Friend, Nosferatu), Marcel Iures (Peacemaker, Hart’s War) and introduces Alexandra Pirici. The music will be composed by one of today's most exciting classical composers, Osvaldo Golijov. Executive producers are Fred Roos and Anahid Nazarian .
The director of photography is Mihai Malaimare Jr. with production design by Calin Papura. Academy Award® winner Peter King and his team from the U.K. are designing and executing the special make up effects and hairstyles; Gloria Papura has created period costumes ranging from 1894 to 1969.
