There’s no way around describing My Name Is Love as heartbreaking. It may be 20 minutes long but you need the time to love, Love.
… in 50 words:
All I want to do is love Love. Adam Lundgren (Love) gives a beautiful performance under what must’ve been great direction from David Färdmar, who also wrote the screenplay. It’s harrowing to know that this is based on a true story, but that imbues the story and character with life.
