Cronos (1993)

Cronos (1993) Guillermo del Toro’s first gothic masterpiece studies the relationship between a grandfather and his granddaughter through a surreal allegory about immortality and the limits of life on earth. Federico Luppi gives a stunning performance as the elderly antiques dealer who discovers a treasure that rejuvenates his blood and turns him younger. But there is a cruel price he has to pay to stay alive.

Measured time as flow,

Powered by a giant water wheel

Had an astrolabe dial, displaying

The sun, the moon’s age, a star map,

In his Ohio mansion backyard

To fuel his electrical power

And keep his industrial clocks in order.
