Total Love

This picturesque but empty-headed drama takes its name from an aphrodisiac accidentally concocted by four friends in an Israeli city who then decide to cash in on the drug. Even without the assistance of Total Love, the three men adore free-spirited Renanna and resolve to rescue her when she's jailed for selling drugs in Goa, India. She's supposed to be an irresistible life force, a femme fatale who flits from man to man, but she seems more like a spaced-out waif, traveling from one international drug mecca to another in search of something like enlightenment. The film has its pleasures—gorgeous sunrises on the beach, idyllic moments by a canal, snapshots of teeming India, a weird millennial rave—but the characters' drug-culture platitudes are as cheesy as the psychedelic graphics they see under the spell of their potion. Gur Bentwich directed. 96 min.
