What are people saying?

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Hot Love

    What it lacks in budget it makes up for in ideas and heart. Hot Love is interesting because it's mostly silent, thus the acting and succinct images dictate what we know is going on in most of the scenes. It may start out-- and rarely deviate- from a typical romance, but the 'bliss' scenes are creatively done in a montage. This short also has a gimmicky horrific ending, but it's good fun, as well. Good music, too.

  • Gabriel Wagner's rating of the film Hot Love

    Je crois que le mieux est de voir ce court-métrage après avoir exploré l'entière cinématographie de Buttgereit. Une fois l'ensemble de ses grandes oeuvres écoutées, je trouve très pertinent de se retourner vers ses premières oeuvres (Hot love par exemple), pour ainsi comprendre les fondements même de la pensée cinématographique de Buttgereit. Impressionnant.
