LOVE ME TENDER

Klaudia Reynicke | Switzerland | 2019 | 83 min
O.V in Italian subtitled in English and Spanish

Dogtooth (Lanthimos) and Attenberg (Tsangari) are soulmates to this film, which brings the spirit of the new Greek wave to the region of Ticino, Switzerland-almost-Italy. It does so through Seconda, an anti-heroine with agoraphobia unable to leave home, who would have to get by on her own after her mother dies and her father goes out partying to never return. Two suitors: a grandad and a big-nose. But her story will go along a different path, in this dislocated and empowering pop drama.
