You can’t help being in love with documentary films? We understand you! For a perfect celebration of the feast of love, we have films about love, dating, eroticism, the first kiss as well as how they love in Sweden in store for you.
Swedish Theory of Love examines the results of the social policy of the Scandinavian country which, with its emphasis on individualism, may have dampened the passion of introverted Swedes. Blind Loves by Juraj Lehotský show the hardships of the blind when looking for a Mr. or Ms. Right. Sex and erotic tension also belong to love; in his two-minute film Erotique, renowned experimenter Peter Tscherkassky presents body parts as an abstract painting. One can also feel love towards art: an elderly couple live in Moscow among paintings of old masters such as Velázquez, Michelangelo and the likes. If you like peeking into the private lives of other people, Suitcase of Love and Shame is just for you! Director Jane Gillooly bought a suitcase full of memories on eBay and used it to reconstruct a story of the forbidden love of two lovers in 1960s America.
Don’t hesitate to immerse yourselves in films about love from all possible standpoints; you will fall in love with them!
