The Waves


Directed by Annette Apon
Netherlands, 1982


The film is based on Virginia Woolf’s book “The Waves” (1931). The six main characters are constantly trying to recapture the feeling of harmony they knew as children. Through their thoughts the intensity of childhood, the optimism of youth and the disillusion of later years are portrayed.
