Plot synopsis
Existential melodrama.
A strange rondo of three heroes, fatally linked to each other without any possibility of rapprochement, like cosmic bodies that obey the relentless laws of nature. A very young girl, her inexperienced but ardent coeval, and an experienced middleaged charmer in his penultimate hormonal storms. The girl does not answer the feelings of the men, and all three suffer but cannot separate, until the object of desire, so terribly beautiful, departs into nonexistence. ìNo Loveî was never interested in audiences, even not ìeliteî audiencesî. Thus it bewitched: a stunningly beautiful film, black-and-white, impregnated with lunar light that suddenly blows up in sharp and strange flashes. Void, unpopulated, deserted...
- Prize for Best Actress (Ksenia Kachalina), Film Festival ìKinotavrî, Sochi, 1992;
- Prize ìGolden Ariesî for the Best Photography, 1992.
