Late Night Love
From the ancient Greek Gods to our dating app reality, love was (and will continue to be) frail, unwarranted and still feverishly pursued – in its many varieties. This Late Night Love programme is true to its roots: desire and its manipulation, fetish, racy spirit and still poignant observations.
The body is king here, both its various animation transformations and in its fiction incarnations. Women here become the protagonists and the initiators of the sexual play – which comes about in unexpected ways. There are dates gone terribly wrong, encounters that give more than what they promise, fantasies leading to full-scale adventures, and more sober stories with gripping insights.
A welcome indeterminacy permeates the films, and gives them their distinctive character; nothing can be pre-controlled, nothing is experienced the way it was fantasized, nothing is safe to assume as a given. Love and desire may fade away or find redemption; as for the trip itself, it is varied and volatile.
