"Youth Without Youth" is a 2007 movie written, directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. The film is based on a novel of the same name by Romanian author Mircea Eliade. It stars Tim Roth, Alexandra Maria Lara, and Bruno Ganz. The movie is set in Europe in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Tim Roth plays Dominic Matei, an aging linguistics professor who is frustrated by a life unfulfilled. He decides to end it all by committing suicide, but just as he is about to pull the trigger, a bolt of lightning strikes him and he's bathed in a mysterious light.

After the incident, Dominic discovers that he has acquired a genius-level intelligence that enables him to speak and understand any language, including languages that have not been spoken in thousands of years. He is also gifted with extraordinary physical healing abilities and a seemingly endless life.

But Dominic's newfound abilities come with a price. His mind is under constant attack from otherworldly entities that try to use his abilities for their own mysterious purposes. He is also pursued by Nazi agents who are trying to capture him for their experiments.

Dominic's journey takes him across Europe, from Romania to Switzerland and then to India, where he meets a young woman named Veronica (Alexandra Maria Lara). Veronica is the spitting image of Laura, Dominic's lost love from his youth. As he gets to know Veronica, Dominic starts to unlock the secrets of his past and the meaning behind his remarkable abilities.

The film is a complex, philosophical meditation on time, memory, and mortality. It is also a visual feast, thanks to Coppola's use of mesmerizing imagery and gorgeous cinematography by Mihály Vig.

The acting in "Youth Without Youth" is top-notch, with Tim Roth delivering a powerful performance as the tortured Dominic. Alexandra Maria Lara is equally impressive as Veronica, imbuing the character with a quiet strength and grace. Bruno Ganz rounds out the cast with his portrayal of an enigmatic scientist who becomes a mentor to Dominic.

Overall, "Youth Without Youth" is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking film that will leave viewers contemplating the mysteries of life and death long after the credits roll. Coppola's direction is masterful, and the performances of the cast are truly exceptional. If you're a fan of cerebral, visually stunning cinema, "Youth Without Youth" is a must-see.
