Review: Love Sick (Legaturi bolnavicioase)

Can i sleep over tonight?

Incest and lesbianism.

Did i make you stand up and take notice?



Anyway, although much of these topic are avoided in social entity (probably not lesbianism as they seem to be more acceptable then gay in the public arena) , Love Sick tells of a story of two girls, Kiki and Alex, who develops a bond and quickly allowing themselves to take this feeling to where it'll eventually blossom. Of cos the course of love never did run smooth with Sandu, Kiki's jealous brother, interrupting. So i guess you'll know where the incest part kicks in?

Kudos to the explosive acting of Maria Popistasu and Ioana Barbu as Kiki and Alex as they truly show the vulnerability and tender love they portray to each other to almost its sweet innocence. Perfect flow, without the over-longing settlement just for the sake of hidden messages, director Tudor Giurgiu's debut feature truly did the novelization of the story true to its form by focusing on the emotions, allowing the two characters to bloom in its own setting.
