The lovers behave like communicating vessels in physics; they flow into each other with their own unfulfilled needs. What binds Ana and Toma together so strongly – love or addiction?
“A gripping and ferociously bitter account of falling out of love.” (The Filmstage)
Following up his Golden Bear winner Child’s Pose with this Silver Bear winning entry (for outstanding artistic contribution), Calin Peter Netzer’s latest, Ana, mon amour, delivers a deep analysis of relationships and the ties that bind… and the things that break them apart.
There’s no doubt that the film will impress wherever there is an audience for substantial, highly adult cinema. (Screendaily)
“Ana, mon amour is a story about a man’s struggle to find out how the unseen, the unspoken, even the unthought shaped his life. (...) The film doesn’t deal with the erosion of Toma’s relationship with Ana, but rather with the actual impossibility of properly building a relationship. (...) The truth always finds a way to survive its denial.” (Director’s Statement)
