The world-famous film “Ten Minutes Older” (2002) is an attempt by modern producers to convey their unique understanding of time in exactly ten minutes of screen time.

According to the plot, a child experiences deep emotions and literally "grows up in front of our eyes" in a short period of time but intense in context of life.
The film consists of 2 parts — “Ten Minutes Older: Trumpet” (2002) and “10 Minutes Older: Cello” (2002). There are no rules and restrictions, except one — to make it within 10 minutes. This could be viewed as a film encyclopedia of the key stylistic techniques of modern cinema from Wim Wenders to Aki Kaurismäki.
