Terence Davies, director of ‘Distant Voices’ and ‘The Deep Blue Sea’, dies

Terence Davies’ social networks report that the artist has died. It was this same Saturday, October 7, when, at the age of 78, the filmmaker died “at home and in peace after suffering a brief illness.” Those close to him have shared some quotes about the death of Horacio and Christine Rossetti.

The filmmaker will not be remembered for dozens of films, he did little, but he was especially loved among lovers of detailed and unhurried cinema. For films such as ‘Story of a Passion’, ‘Distant Voices’ and ‘The Day Ends’ he was internationally recognized.

In recent years, ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ was a huge critical success (for example, it was chosen 3rd best movie of the year by our editorial team in 2012), and his last film was ‘Benediction’ (2021), which was made with the award for best script in San Sebastián. Ultimately, he was preparing an adaptation of the also enormous Stefan Zweig.
