Touch Me Not

(Francia, Germania, Bulgaria, Repubblica Ceca / 2018 / 100’)

The director and his characters venture together into a personal research about intimacy. On a thin border between fiction and reality, Touch Me Not follows the emotional paths of Laura, Roman and Christian, taking a deep and emphatic look at their lives. Even if still terrorized by it, these people are looking for a new intimacy form, working on themselves to overtake old frames of mind, taboo and defence mechanisms, to find the freedom from their fears. Awarded with the Golden Bear at the
Berlin International Film Festival, Adina Pintilie’s amazing first feature tells how to find intimacy in the most unexpected ways and teach us how to love each other
without losing ourselves.
