TRUE LOVE WAYS
Séverine decides, under the influence of a recurring dream, to take some distance from her friend Tom. But he does not want to see her slip away. He makes a deal with a guy he met in a bar. The man will kidnap Séverine, whereupon Tom will intervene to save the day and Séverine’s heart will once again belong to him. Too bad Tom doesn’t know the real intentions of his new friend.
Buddy Holly’s music keeps touching hearts. Swiss director Mathieu Seiler, whose The Outing was presented last year in our 7th Orbit Section, must have had Holly’s song in mind when he realized this meditation on love and death. But we’re certain Holly didn’t have such nightmarish images in mind when he wrote the song. True Love Ways is a haunting erotic thrill-ride shot in timeless black and white images.
