Hungry for Love

France, 1996 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Orazio Massaro

An odd, striking erotic exploration of love and sexual obsession. A free-spirited Italian artist and a French-Arab hairdresser meet and fall in love one afternoon. They go from the euphoric heights of love to the depths of despair when he loses her number and she believes she's been dumped. What follows is a brooding essay on the elusive nature of love, loss and loneliness. (MM)
