DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION

LA CASA DELL'AMORE (THE HOUSE OF LOVE)

Italy. 2020. 77 '. Documentary. VOSTF. Forbidden - 16 years old.
Director, screenplay: Luca Ferri
With: Bianca Dolce Miele, Natasha De Casto, Dario Bacis, Domenico Monetti, Walter Zombie.

La casa dell'amore follows the daily life of a thirty-nine-year-old trans prostitute in the Milan accommodation where she lives and receives her clients. A magical place allowing its guests to show themselves to the world as they really are, to abandon all masks and to escape social constraints.

With this disturbing work presented at the Berlin Film Festival, Italian director Luca Ferri concludes his Apartment Trilogy, which is halfway between documentary and fantasy cinema and brings together eccentric characters who voluntarily shut themselves in their homes to talk of their predilections, or to satisfy their fetishistic fantasies. Day after day, Bianca and her black cat eagerly await any visit, or any phone call that will allow them to transform their loneliness into a new form of tenderness. La casa dell'amore defines love (whether carnal or spiritual) as the only antidote to overcome one's inner demons.
