Based on the Japanese novel In Love with the Dead, from acclaimed author Kei Oishi (Apartment 1303, The Last Supper), Love Eternal centres on an isolated and death-fixated young man who tries to make sense of the world, and his existence, in the only way he knows how... by getting closer to death.
Brendan Muldowney’s second feature, following the award-winning Savages, is a dark and elegiac yet inspiring portrayal of a damaged young man trying to find his way in a world he no longer understands. Featuring note-perfect performances from Robert de Hoog and Pollyana McIntosh, Love Eternal is a rich cinematic experience, and, in his exploration of notions of life, death and the universe as a whole, Muldowney has created a bold cinematic landscape all his own.
