Love Sick

Halfway through this Romanian drama, two lesbian lovers debate the Vicomte de Chateaubriand and the difference between love and illness, giving an intellectual gloss to a movie that mostly just titillates. The women are fellow university students in Bucharest, one a serious, well-behaved country girl (Ioana Barbu), the other a needy, impetuous city dweller (Maria Popistasu of Crash Test Dummies) mired in an incestuous relationship with her sociopath brother (Tudor Chirila). Director Tudor Giurgiu favors flash over substance, and for a film about passion this is a curiously cold exercise, the source of the women's ardor a mystery. In Romanian with subtitles. 86 min.
