Storyline

Dino is forty years old and an immense love for Anna, who is unable to touch and consume in an embrace. Anesthetist by day, compulsive lover at night, seeking satisfaction with prostitutes and swingers. The early death of his brother and mother left him deeply marked and lead to sexual addiction. Rejected the loving care and the gentle advances of Anna, Dino recovers and meets the former partner's, asking them to get back with her or appagarne the pleasure he denies. Dismissed or looked with compassion, the man asks Anna to find a passionate lover. Anna, first reluctant, he ends up giving, while doing a night of sex with a stranger. But the feeling he has for Dino is more powerful than any physical pleasure and frustration. Return home but maybe for her and Dino is really too late to start. Written by lament

the pain of loving
25 September 2013 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

Original, touching, interesting, post-modern, uneasy. A movie stepping outside the "typical" Italian industry, putting itself on top of contemporary European film-making. A film directed by an author in search of a new language, able to melt plot, characters, psychology, into the flesh of his actors, into a streaming of disturbing situations. You may hate it, but there's no doubt that this is one of those movie that hit the audience, changing the point of view on love and relationships (and on cinema too) of every viewer. There were so many questions spinning in my head after watching this movie: what should be the purpose of contemporary film-making? How far you can push yourself in telling a story? How can you translate into images a psychological pathology? Isabella Ferrari's performance (awarded with the best actress's prize at Rome Film Festival in 2012) is impressing and stunning. She put herself completely in the hands of the director, giving it all, reaching the audience with her desperation, her pain, her loneliness. The loneliness caused by an impossible love. The kind of love that destroys everything. That destroys lives.
