“Antoine has a desire. His passion and his love are so overwhelming that he has to stay close to Bruno. He loves his warmth and he needs it. But, as with any relationship, soon comes the time of detachment and what will happen if Antoine’s body stops responding?”
Written & Directed by: Christophe Predari
Starring: Thomas Coumans & Adrien Desbons
Human Warmth is beautiful, poetic and original. It’s difficult to describe it without ruining what made it special. It explores the notion of sex and love through the image of naked bodies in the wilderness – I feel like my explanation needs refining. It just works. It creates a visual cue as to what is reality and what is happening within the characters; their raw emotion and feelings. I wasn’t sure what note we ended on but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Things I Liked: 1 - The poetic dialogue 2 - The use of sound 3 - The woodland/nature/raw/sex/emotion imagery Things I Didn't Like: 1 - The ending
