Overview

Filmmaker Heddy Honigmann takes an up-close look at one of the world's most famous cemeteries in this documentary exploring Père-Lachaise -- the eternal resting ground of such world-renowned artists as Jim Morrison, Piaf, Chopin, and Proust. Despite the fact that they may be home to a variety of well-known artists, composers, and musicians, the lavish grounds of Père-Lachaise are also occupied by a number of lesser-known figures whose once-strong fan bases have since died down as the proliferation and popularity of the departed eventually waned. Still, thousands of people continue to visit Père-Lachaise each and every year, and whether it be the fan who shows up to place a flower on the grave of the artist who inspired them or the little old ladies who tend to the graves and ensure that the grounds don't fall to ruin, these quiet visitors open up to the camera to provide an intimate look at the meaning of immortality in a world where death waits for no one.
