The soundtrack is perfect for the film and shots are stylishly framed. However, I am not sure why this film is called 'love'. The main actors often insult each other, are disrespectful and this is a clearly destructive relationship. I agree that the meaning of life is Love but not at all this type of overinflated sexuality that leads to nowhere. Sex scenes are explicit including orgies or threesomes. Too dark for me.
Is Love just another word for possessing another person's soul and sex life? Is love really a destructive feeling or is it the sex that lead to downfall as true love should lead to couples having babies together? This would probably have been a much better film had not the leading male character been such a selfish prick and the dialogue consisted mostly of swearing and bad improvising. The sex is good though.
Se me pedissem para falar sobre este filme eu não saberia o que dizer. Levei muito tempo até arranjar vontade para vê-lo, talvez com medo de olhar para o amor através de lentes que até então me eram desconhecidas. É sobre o amor sim, e é assustador. Imagens fortes e uma dinâmica sensual, que, no fim, nos deixam sem saber se nos queremos apaixonar ou ficar sozinhos para sempre.
Extremely well crafted film about love, lust and the difficult and often problematic distinction between them. The main character starts end ends the film lost in the imprisioning and maddening labyrinth of not understanding his own choices, as well as their infinite echoes, making this an extremely honest and unsettling movie.
If you had a crew following along on one of your own erotic escapades you'd cringe and laugh at the insipid dialogue produced by your own voice which in fact is more how it goes if you think about it. The sex, thankfully, is real. Devoid of hyper-erotic porno-gymnastics nor any of the infuriating cold hearted pantomime out of Hollywood. A personal film in a very good way. A slow burning, mental chamber piece.
Although it efficiently tests the limits of a certain masculine boundary when it comes to imagination, desire, sex - "important" stuff - I wonder who is to be enlightened here. Testament alone that I'm saying Noe is successful, and the texture of the film is stunning, a grainy lush haze. Pointedly self-effacing? For the guys who when asked by a woman for their wildest fantasy can only come up with "two women".
An interesting and bold movie that could probably only have been made by Noé. His most honest and heartfelt so far. An emotional and at times uncomfortable journey. But uncomfortable is good, in small doses. The film feels too long, though, so your thoughts might wander at times. The amount of unsimulated sex scenes overstay their welcome too, in my opinion. And Murphy's voiceover doesn't work for me. 3.5/5
