Storyline

Vittorio is looking for a woman who matches his ideal. Through a classified ad he meets Sonia, a sweet, pleasant, intelligent girl. However, she weighs 125 pounds -- which according to Vittorio is way too much. A goldsmith by trade, Vittorio is obsessed with the desire to shape Sonia's body and mind as does a fire with gold. Almost imperceptibly Sonia becomes a passive participant and the relationship grows into a reciprocal masochistic game. When the two lovers isolate themselves in a country house in the Veneto hills, they dangerously lose touch with reality and the rest of the world. Written by Sujit R. Varma

When in the movies is possible to introduce another kind of love
9 November 2004 | by (Roma, Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie is not a surprise for people saw "L'imbalsamatore" from the same director, because piece of geniality were present also there. This movie is wonderful, watching it you are satisfy for the choice. The story is incredible, because, as the title say, it speak about love, about two person that meat each other and fall in love, but it is not so simple. The strange love between them is out of mind, and what is incredible to me is the easy way that the watcher understand this love In fact, in my opinion, it should be very hard to take all the parts and reason of this strange love, and Garrone is able to let understand both position. Even if the men position is mentally sick you can realize his position and I think it is because of Garrone. Landscapes and locations are very good, and the perfection of light and color are not new because of the previous movie. Good choice also for the two actors, the man is totally inside the character, the girl really lost weight during shots, that's crazy but ideal for the movie. The music gives the correct atmosphere that's why won same awards. I wonder why these products remain in Italy and is not exported usually it go just to France and Germany but no more.....why? I am proud of this kind of Italian cinema and I would like to know what the foreigners think.
