Film Description:

Novalis’s unfinished novel Heinrich Vonnegut Von Ofterdingen expresses the longing for a meaning in life, which arises from the experience of mysterious meaning and is capable of overcoming death. The longing is seen as blue because it is associated with remoteness, just like loyalty. The color of blue is mysterious, romantic, and it is presented by the illusionary and lost Neptune, as depicted in Plato’s ideal state that symbolizes the unattainable ideal.
