An ode to cinema as a sensation. A train thunders through a tunnel, seagulls screech above the water. An empty station, a bleak harbour and two lonely souls in a grey town. He’s an engine driver, she sells tickets for the ferry. He sees her every day in his train and is secretly in love. Is there hope for love in Athens?
Beautiful urban tableaux at the start of Forever show that Athens is a dying city, plagued by a lack of love. This is where Costas and Anna live, fixed in their rhythm of loneliness. They even seem to be satisfied with it. Costas is an engineer and Anna sells tickets for the ferry.
