The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of psychopathic criminals who have kidnapped her child.
30 years after the shooting of 'Blue Velvet', the classic film of David Lynch, the German filmmaker Peter Braatz revisits his original Super-8 material and numerous photographies, filmed 30 years ago on the set in Wilmington, USA.
Schwarz's "Mysteries of Love" is a wonderful reminiscence by the cast and film-makers of the landmark movie "Blue Velvet". Lynch does not participate in the new footage, but is more than adequately represented by clips from interviews from the time of the film's release. In contrast to most DVD-extras (wherein the cast and producers lavish obviously forced or perfunctory praise on the director or their co-workers) these participants seem genuine in their appreciation of Lynch and his work, and offer hype-free insights into the production process and into Lynch's direction. Blue Velvet is an "important film" and is well-represented by this set of interviews.
