The Last Chapter

La dernière séance

24th TDF: Greek Premiere

A young filmmaker and an older man on the verge of retiring. It begins as a sexual adventure, mutual desire, games of domination and submission, master and slave. But it becomes much more, an exchange between generations, both joyous and fearful. Between a whip and a leather harness they discuss love, death, the AIDS epidemic of the 80s, a project for a new life, their own bond. An intimate and daring story about friendship and love, a relentless tale of life approaching its ending.
