Ana, Mon Amour

Toma and Ana, two young graduate students, quickly fall in love upon meeting. However, theirs is not your average lighthearted love story. Ana’s tendency for debilitating panic attacks leaves her entirely dependent on Toma almost immediately. The relationship becomes increasingly intense as he isolates himself to care for her, taking her to doctor visits and paying her bills. As their attachment to one another grows, deeper issues emerge. ANA, MON AMOUR chronicles the different phases of Toma’s and Ana’s codependent relationship, up until its ultimate demise. The nonlinear narrative creates a cinematic puzzle for the viewer to piece together. As events unfold, it becomes less clear whether the biggest issue in their partnership is Ana’s unstable mental state or Toma’s desire to control her. Unlike many movies about tumultuous love, ANA, MON AMOUR does not romanticize the experience, but instead portrays its raw, imperfect form. (In Romanian with subtitles) —G.S.
