Trailer for The Man Who Loves.
The Man Who Loves is an unsentimental film that speaks in a direct, clear, and even shameless way about feelings of love, above all, but also feelings of abandonment and the fear of losing all.
The film is about a love, Roberto’s love, that is absolute. The kind of love that can cut you down, or totally fill your life. The kind of love that can make you vomit as soon as you get up in the morning, or can make you feel like you are the only man on earth. The love that can mean fulfillment, or the grief of abandonment. The love that songs sing about, books write about, the love that the philosopher Barthes called ’obscene’, and for which nothing on earth is more important, no catastrophes greater than a call that does not come from the person loved. Everyone close to Roberto is struggling with the theme of love: his two women, his brother, his parents, the female doctor who owns the pharmacy where he works. All, in some way, are transformed or realized by it.
