Description:
Youth Without Youth is a 2007 mystery fantasy film written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, based on the novella of the same name by Romanian author Mircea Eliade. It was the first film that Coppola had directed in ten years since 1997's The Rainmaker. It was distributed through Sony Pictures Classics in the United States on December 14, 2007 and Pathé in the UK and France.
