One Glance and Love Breaks Out
In seven scenes, set in South America, the film deals with the various conflicts and (power) relations in the relationships between men and women. The episodes also deal with specific female role models: the bride, the wife, the rival, the abandoned, the betrothed, the abused and the determined. The scenes depict passionate, romantic longing for love, but also the harsh reactions when a promise of happiness is not so easily fulfilled. It is about heartbreak and longing, jealousy and hatred, exploitation and self-inflicted submission. Nevertheless, the basic tone remains hopeful. The stylized images are structured by off-camera commentary and tango rhythms.
