The chronicle of the life and great love of Otto Bloom, an extraordinary man who experiences time in reverse – passing backwards through the years while remembering the future.

Written and directed by award-winning Australian helmer Cris Jones (“The Funk”, “Excursion”) THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OTTO BLOOM blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction and takes Australian drama to creatively mind-bending new heights. The first time feature film stars Xavier Samuel („The Twilight Saga: Eclipse“, “Love & Friendship”, “Adore”) as the ambivalent but fascinating Otto Bloom, proving his exceptional talent alongside three-times Golden Globe® nominee Rachel Ward (“Against All Odds”, “The Thorn Birds”) and her daughter Matilda Brown (“Am I Okay”).
