Quotes

Marco: I fancy the delight... of what it might be like to be thought of as the Anti-Christ. Anti-body to humanity. Because, God damn it, if you handed me the planet, I'd give it such an apocalyptic rinse - that would rid it of these lice.

Honest, beautiful, heartbreaking
6 August 2016 | by eeva-pusaSee all my reviews

Touched With Fire, definitely not an easy watch at times, tells the story of two young poets falling in love while battling bipolar disorder.

The cinematography can only be described as breathtaking, and the same could be said about the soundtrack. This film was truly a joy for the eyes and the ears. Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby were fantastic as the two patients, poets, lovers. The only thing that felt a bit off was the story - it felt slightly confusing at times, maybe moving a little fast?

It might have felt like something was missing from the story, but the honesty and realness made up for it. Definitely worth the watch - while being a visual treat, Touched With Fire also opened my eyes to completely new aspects of mental illness.
