A Film about Love


Film o lásce

  • 1982, 7 min

A man and a woman are about to kiss, the background is neutral, the perforation of the film strip running on the left. When the mouths are about to join, the film comes back to the starting point of the sequence, and so on in the pulsing staccato of an endless loop. A film kiss, a promise of sexual reunion, which is the base of great stories, is brutally repudiated. The lips are never going to touch, we are witnessing only the repetition of desire, which is also our desire, which is endless, because the kiss would be just and only the end. A film about physical violence fitted to the Hollywood cliché
