In collaboration with Siciliano Contemporary Ballet, Tale of Love is an allegory of toxic love.
On a transcendental level, the film grasps the psychological violence within an unstable and unbalanced love story. It's like a recurring dream. Trapped souls, poised between attraction and repulsion, unrequited obsessions and self-defence mechanisms.
Tale of Love is the struggle between opposite but complementary forces. Characters never meet, yet they continue to relate to each other.
