Love Rites

Love Rites

Available on MUBI, Tubi TV
A prostitute has her own twisted plans for the man who pursues her in this strange anti-love story that plays out like a very eff'ed up version of BEFORE SUNRISE. When lustful Hugo meets a call girl one morning on the subway, he cancels his plans and the two wander around the city talking and flirting. But as the day goes on, it becomes less obvious who's doing the pursuing, and who's being pursued. Polish director Walerian Borowcyzk, famous for surreal fusions of porn and horror like THE BEAST, offers up a fittingly frightening finale to his celebrated career. (In French with English Subtitles)
