TOUCH ME NOT
Adina Pintilie / Romania / 2018 / 123 min
Together, a filmmaker and her characters venture into a personal research about intimacy. On the fluid border between reality and fiction, TOUCH ME NOT follows the emotional journeys of Laura, Tomas and Christian, offering a deeply empathic insight into their lives. Craving for intimacy yet also deeply afraid of it, they work to overcome old patterns, defense mechanisms and taboos, to cut the cord and finally be free.
Touch Me Not looks at how we can find intimacy in the most unexpected ways, at how to love another without losing ourselves. "TOUCH ME NOT is a research on intimacy as well as an invitation to dialogue. It invites you, the viewer, to question your own ideas about intimacy, the body, relationships, to be curious about the different Other and to exercise your empathic ability to put yourself into this Other's "skin"
