The Dalliance - Overview
The Dalliance brings to life the mischievous and often flirtatious side of mortality.
Using actual events as the basis for the film, The Dalliance provides a glimpse into a world where Death brings a breath of fresh air into a dying man’s life and helps him answer the question: What would you do if Death gave you a choice?
What is the film about?
Alone in an ICU in the pre-dawn hours, Elliot (played by David Harper) fights to stay alive from the sickness eating away at his every breath. He awakens in a weak and foggy state to find Death (played by Jacqueline Claire) patiently waiting for him. For Elliot, Death is incarnated as a beautiful young woman. Her strength is undeniable and her demeanor is hypnotizing. He is obviously no match for her.
Through often witty and flirtatious banter and teasing, Elliot and Death together explore the imminent facts of life. They bond and connect through an unexpected intimacy; each one compelling the other to open up and share in their vulnerability.
The Dalliance captures a undeniably extraordinary moment in time. It will forever influence each of our views of life and death as we near the inevitable.
