"RIVA & ALBERT is a deeply touching film about life, friendship and jazz. Your heart will be warmed. A must see!" Jo Becker, The New York Times

"In our time pensioners are mostly seen as a problem to be dealt with, tugged away in care homes. This short film shows us what we are actually missing. Albert, the jazz-playing 102-year-old has a century of experience, thoughts and, yes, fun to share. And Riva is a young woman who fully embraces this man. The best thing about this film is that Albert is actually a man for her. Not a charitable effort to put on her schedule, not a poor old chap she feels obliged to visit once in a while. There is love between those two people. And it is wonderful to see short glimpses of this unusual affair in “Riva and Albert”.
