45 years (2015)
The scenario is this. Geoff (Tom Courtenay) and Kate (Charlotte Rampling) are celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary and the preparations are well underway for a party when Geoff receives a letter that the body of a long lost love has been unearthed in the Swiss Alps. The impact of this knowledge is what slowly unfolds throughout the rest of the movie. Geoff has not talked much about the woman he planned to marry before he met Kate and she wasn't very curious about her. But the fact is that long lost loves, especially those that are essentially unresolved, do not necessarily diminish in importance with time.
