Short Synopsis:

Caught in a timeless world of passions and betrayals, Mia searches for the truth behind a mysterious woman's death.


A Thousand Kisses DeepNamed after the Leonard Cohen song, and using its lyrics as an effective, atmosphere-inducing opening and closing voiceover, A Thousand Kisses Deep is the story of Mia, a woman whose attraction to destructive, selfish jazz trumpeter Ludwig spins a story of love and abandonment, decadence and – of all things – time travel.

On her way home from work Mia witnesses an old neighbour commit suicide. Around her dead body is left a ripped-up photograph: a photograph of Mia’s former lover, Ludwig. Unsettled by the event, Mia asks her building’s omniscient and omnipresent caretaker Max to help her out – only to discover an unnerving secret about her home. Using the rickety old elevator to go further and further back in time, Mia has to find out where the end of the string lies – and to uncover a very intimate truth about her family.

A Thousand Kisses Deep is a very well-shot and directed film, with impressive performances from Jodie Whittaker (Mia)and David Warner (Max). The standout though, is Dougray Scott as Ludwig, who finds that balance between violence and irresistible charm – a flickering flame to Mia’s moth, both painfully attractive and uncompromisingly dangerous.
