Youth Without Youth George Lucas has been saying he'll return to his small-scale filmmaking roots for at least a couple of decades. His original industry booster, Francis Ford Coppola, actually delivers on that promise with this HD-shot adaptation of a Mircea Eliade story. Tim Roth plays a professor turned globe-hopping fugitive; Downfall's Hitler, Bruno Ganz, and secretary Alexandra Maria Lara are reunited as players on Roth's enigmatic journey. After his full decade's absence, it'll be intriguing to see what dragged Coppola back behind the camera. (Dec. 21)<\!s>*
