Bruno loves his wife Maxine. But something is wrong. Their love is not what it once was, and Maxine has found someone else. That changes everything. And it changes Bruno. But there is nothing he can do about it. Once you have wandered into the dark recesses of love, which are filled with frustration, hate, and powerlessness, there is no turning back.Written by
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.
