Amidst the dreaming spires of a British university, an international composer struggles to seal his reputation with a modern Requiem, only to find it raises more ghosts than it lays to rest.
Torn between the conflicting demands of art and academia, he neglects his hypochondriac wife and teenage kids, turning upside down the institution he is meant to rescue. But a time-bomb is ticking in the college kitchens, in the form of an enigmatic young cellist who remembers more about his past than he does.
"Delirium" features an acting tour de force by writer/director Gareth Jones and a specially commissioned Requiem by producer/composer Fiona Howe. Shot at the historic Founder's Building at Royal Holloway, this is an atmospheric study of the overheated musical life within cloistered walls, a moving story of how music transcends infidelity and attains grandeur.
Official Selection of the 39th Moscow International Film Festival.
