I have said it before and I’ll say it again, a clean-cut Keanu Reeves is enough to break hearts worldwide! The 47-year-old stunner was photographed striking a pose on the red carpet for the Side By Side Premiere during day seven of the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival at the Haus Der Berliner Festspiele on February 15, 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
Good Lawd that man does NOT age! And while other sites are branding him a vampire (lolz), I think it comes down to the fact that he has amazing Asian genes which will keep him looking young for many years to come. (Though I do like to imagine him as a sexy vampire like those we see on True Blood!)
According to the festivals website, here is a description about Side By Side, a documentary directed by our beloved Reeves.
In this documentary Keanu Reeves elicits intriguing responses from a number of renowned filmmakers including David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Lars von Trier and James Cameron.
SIDE BY SIDE explores both the science behind the development of digital cinema technology as well as its effects. At this historical juncture, in which digital and analogue technologies still exist side by side, the film investigates the pros and cons of digital filmmaking. SIDE BY SIDE is a non-nerdy introduction for all those with an interest in how films are made in the modern age.
In this way, this documentary enlightens rather than baffles the viewer about the differences between analogue and digital techniques – beginning with the moment when the camera begins to turn over to the editing phase; through visual effects to data storage and the projection of the final film in cinemas. Opinions diverge widely: although David Lynch may long have bidden farewell to analogue film processes, Christopher Nolan is adamant that aesthetically speaking, there is no better medium than celluloid.
While at Berlinale, Keanu will also participate in a special panel entitled, Look Who’s Talking: Interviewing on Screen on February 16th. There he will show excerpts and discuss their experiences preparing for and conducting interviews for their latest films which are screening in the Berlinale programme.
Hope we get more pictures of him tomorrow!
