Eternal Waltz

metaphysical short romance film

Eternal Waltz is an epic short romance about soul recognition and a love that spans lifetimes.

1881 tarotA German actor (Thorsten Becker) and American actress (Cindy Marinangel) wanted to make a romantic short movie.  All they knew at first was that they wanted it to include the tarot, a waltz to the Blue Danube, and lovers meeting in more than one time/space.

They asked Laurie Lamson to help them develop the story, write the script, and eventually to direct the film.

In 1887, when a philandering husband ends the secret romance between his wife and their handsome butler, a tarot card reader uses Strauss’ Blue Danube waltz to help them find each other again in the post-apocalyptic future.

After a successful shoot and long post-production process, Eternal Waltz is completed.  See full cast and crew on IMDB.
