    Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's Youth is a nearly perfect meditation on what growing old means for creative types, a wistful and extremely sad comedy where the subject matter is heavy, but the very oddness of the characters and situations nevertheless elicit laughter. The setting, a rejuvenation spa in the Swiss Alps, is host to musicians and film people whose professional lives are on the decline (whatever their actual age), with Michael Cane, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz particularly strong. But what does it for me is the artful direction, the ironic editing, and the visuals One Perfect Shot(TM) after another. There are a couple of stumbles towards the end - Jane Fonda's final scene failed for me - but ultimately, the characters help each other come up with the satisfying final act of their lives out of the chaos and white noise that is their lives seen in hindsight. I think I've got another director whose work I must seek out now. 8 years 5 months ago
