Four Films about Women – The Love’s Torment

  • Augstine

    The 19th-century French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot is best remembered as a teacher of William James and Sigmund Freud, and also for the haunting, fascinating photographs he collected of patients in various states of symptomatic mental distress. Like other important figures in the history of medicine, he is a complicated figure in retrospect, at once a charlatan and a pioneer, a monster and a modernizer.

    Interview with Anne Fountaine – director of Adore

    AF: This is such an original love story! I had never heard of a fusional foursome. What’s really special here is that the tension doesn’t come from rivalry, jealousy, or any negative feeling – it’s built on love. Each of those four characters is simply in love with the other one. I know some people might find it hard to believe, but Doris Lessing, whom I had the privilege to meet before the shoot, told me her novella was based on a true story – which made it even more impressive and inspiring to me.
