an ANTERO ALLI film
(2001; 27 min., USA)

"...uncomfortable and cathartic, not unlike the
feeling of gazing up a car crash:
a difficult sight
to behold, but also too intriguing not to look at and
there is also the hidden sensation of knowing the heavy
damage belongs to someone else; an excellent short film."
(4 stars out of five) PHIL HALL, filmthreat.com

director's notes




an excerpt (not a trailer)

 

With no script, we improvised the action and dialogue
within the parameters of two types of love: friendship
and lust. We discovered unexpected parallels in the
separate lives of two different artist couples.

 


 

Best pals PAULA & OTTO (Susan Schramm and Dana Bergeman)
are peas in a pod, compatible in love and their work as
successful nature photographers. Their pictures hang in
an art gallery until the art dealer (Jean Mazzei)
calls and drops them.

 


 

MAX & CLIO (Paul D'Addario and Carla Negri) are madly
in love, mad about each other and mad at each other
.
They inspire each other's obsessions. She must draw
him; he must have her.
Theirs is a love of...
exquisite annoyance.
