Love Hurts

2020 Drama | Romance

Sam is a shy, mysterious and inconspicuous teenage girl, who falls in love with Troy, leader of an ultraviolent teenage gang, who does not feel physical pain, nor knows what love is. Together, against everyone and everything, they will face a series of obstacles trying to separate them, meanwhile figuring out what love and pain are. Debuting at Curtas, French filmmaker Elsa Rysto presents a love story mediated by ultraviolence, in a modern variation on the classic story of Bonnie and Clyde – or of the more contemporary Mickey and Mallory from “Natural Born Killers”. “Love Hurts” is a simple yet sensitive narrative about the so-called growing pains.
