The History of Love

The History of Love

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017 at 7:00 PM

What if a book written before World War II in a little village in Eastern Europe could shine through the years, crossing continents and surviving violent conflicts, to guide the journey of three generations? This book is entitled THE HISTORY OF LOVE.
Leo, an old Polish Jewish immigrant, lives with the memory of the great love of his life. Despite his painful history, he cheerfully navigates life’s ups and downs.
Across town, in Brooklyn, teenage Alma is determined to find the ideal man for her mother to remarry. Always in control, she is staggered to find herself falling for her handsome classmate Misha.
Nothing seems to link old Leo and young Alma. And yet… From Poland in the 1930s to Central Park, the manuscript of “the most loved woman in the world” will travel through time to unite their destinies.
After The Concert, Radu Mihaileanu returns with a joyful, tender and deeply moving saga. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Nicole Kraus
