LOVE WILL TEAR US APART “L’amore ci dividerà is a film that combines different narrative genres
An uncommunicative young couple with long-standing problems lives
in an enormous house. She still remembers the love that they used to
share and tries to come closer to him. He is completely apathetic and
depressed and refuses any attempt at reconciliation. When she reaches
the end of her rope and demands an explanation they discover they
have the same problem: two hamsters in their belly that are busy
running in a wheel. Once they have been discovered, the two animals
free themselves from their respective “prisons” and their dream of love
and filming techniques to give an ironic twist to its depiction of how
ambiguous, relative and even manipulative the concept of freedom
