A Flame in My Heart

by Alain Tanner1h461987Switzerland
A Flame in My Heart

The film"s page

The painful ending of a love story binding an over-30-year-old woman and a North African, and the beginning and end of a relationship she also has with an "established" journalist she meets in the subway. The stories illustrate the absolute claim of a woman who can only understand love in terms of life and death, an attitude that generally makes love appear dramatic, but at least burning and flickering, like the flame that glows in her heart.
