DVD: Blind Loves (PG)
Friday 03 July 2009
In his documentary feature debut, Juraj Lehotsky reminds us what true love is.
Blind Loves was the first Slovak film to screen at Cannes in 37 years when it appeared as part of the Directors' Fortnight in 2008. In four immensely moving short stories, Lehotsky depicts the lives of four visually impaired couples. Lehotsky's characters give selflessly as the film tackles love across a number of ages and generations. Peter, endlessly dreaming, lives in a world where anything is possible, while Miro, a Roma Gypsy, fights for the love of Monika against the disapproval of her family. Elena anxiously awaits the birth of her first child, and Zuzana, a shy teenager, dreams of finding love online.
