EUROPE, SHE LOVES

EUROPE, SHE LOVES

Europe, She Loves interweaves the stories of four couples on the edge of Europe: Siobhan and Terry in Dublin want to live without drugs; in Tallinn, Veronika wants Harri to get on better with her son Artur; Penny wants to leave Thessaloniki and the older Nicolas to work in Italy, and newly enamored Juan and Karo in Seville barely think about the future. Excessive parties and drug taking are all par for the course and the protagonists have no qualms about allowing the camera to observe intimate moments right up to the point of sex. (Berlin International Film Festival)
