Film 'Twilight of a Life' shows optimistic approach of old age and dependency

The Belgian-Israeli film director, Sylvain Biegeleisen, filmed the last moments he spent with his 94-year-old dying mother, discussing about life, laughing, singing, enjoying life together.

Mother and son went through moments of complete clarity and assertiveness, and moments of loss of memory, in which she used another language, the language of caress.
Although dealing with the issues of dependency and end of life, this is a touching movie with a great sense of humor, joy and optimism.
