Raak mij aan! Touch me!

Oscar nominated film by director Jane Campion (The Power of the Dog) about the last years of poet John Keats' life.

English poet John Keats (1795-1821), before his early death, experienced a great love with Fanny Brawne. This episode is the subject of this excellently crafted love drama by Jane Campion (The Piano), in which chilled, beautifully constructed glimpses of nineteenth-century Hampstead blend beautifully with Keats' sensual, romantic poetry.

Fine lead actors Cornish (Candy) and Whishaw (The Hour) together provide plenty of restrained passion.

With introduction

“Beautiful language and images of beauty conspire against a love doomed to fail.”
The film is introduced in English by Jakob Boer.

Cinematic Beauty

“Beauty alone makes the whole world happy, and each and every being forgets its limitations while under its spell,” the poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller claimed. Cinema is particularly well-suited for delightful encounters with beauty. During the Cinematic Beauty film program we watch seven films, with an introduction, each of which sheds a different light on beauty. In collaboration with the University of Groningen.
