a film by GRIET TECK

When memories fade, music remains.

“An organic film on dementia ... public’s darling

at the International Film Festival Rotterdam”

Trouw - Jan 29, 2014

“Feel my Love like Amour manages to touch the audience by conveying complex emotions...

Griet Teck approaches this difficult subject with gripping lightness and shows a fascinating world where there is a place for human contact... and also for anxiety, joy, silence, serenity, pain and tristesse...

and for nuance. Feel my love is sublime cinema.”

De Wereld Morgen - Feb 5, 2014

SYNOPSIS

‘feel my love’ is a compelling observation of human existence and paints an intimate portrait of life and growing old with dementia. For an entire year the documentary follows the people who live together in Huis Perrekes (Oosterlo, Belgium) as they go about their daily lives and rituals, supported by each other and by their loved ones. Using music as a motif, this consciously light-hearted film looks at what is still there, not at what has been lost. 

 

‘feel my love’ is about love, letting go, wonder and the human desire to be there until the very end.
