Days of Heaven

Synopsis

Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepard, Linda Manz.
Set in the days just before America entered World War One this is a story of a tragic love triangle. It is told through the eyes of someone looking back at events that shaped her life when she was a young girl.
The film is also a homage to nature. Frames are filled with sky, fields, dawn, sunset and it is quite simply one of the most beautifully shot films you will ever see. Add in the acting, the story line, the stunning score by Ennio Morricone and you have a genuine classic.
Winner, Best Director, Cannes 1979
