one day, a cloistered young man decides that he doesn’t want to live anymore and he starts researching various suicide methods. tens, hundreds of them. but funnily enough, it’s precisely his obsession with death that keeps him alive. accessing a particular side of “love” that most people are willing to sweep right under the rug, love eternal is the kind of movie that can easily suck you in with its dark-themed and emotional cinematography. everything with an airy score too. eventually, it comes as no surprise that this movie is based on a japanese novel by kei oishi. and the great thing about it is that, despite its mildly disturbing theme, this movie is not a downer. quite far from it. i rest my case here. enjoy!
