An evolution of love into something more.
1 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Obsessive, over weight Bruno moves into a new home with skinny wife Maxine. She doesn't understand the nature of his love, a love which has darkened into a boiling hunger.

As Maxine's affections wane and wander, Bruno's desperation grows and his desires become ever more corporeal. His relationship with Maxine has become a physical part of himself and as it becomes corrupted, so, inevitably does Bruno.

An claustrophobic portrayal of everyday cannibalism and the corrupting influence of obsession. Excellent performances, especially by Nicolas Bro, and sublime cinematography.

Winner of the Jury Prize at the Gerardmer Film Festival in France.
