STATEMENT OF THE DIRECTOR about Too Much Love Will Kill You

Too Much Love Will Kill You is about identity and power. The film combines irony and absurdity with a great deal of heartfelt feeling as it tells the story of a Russian girl who runs away her boring Parisian life and land in Beirut, city of chaos, in order to work as a cabaret dancer. She meets marginal people and prostitutes who are taking her in an endless drift-away. Inspired by Fassbinder, Pasolini and Tarkovski, the film composes like a realistic nightmare with simplicity and a critical perspective on society.

We travel in Too Much Love Will Kill You: The film opens in Paris with the impossible love and continues in Lebanon, country of war, political crises, fascism in everyday life, cruelty…

The film explores the disappointments of marginal urban life and shows the horrifyingly bare and mechanical reality of working life in society if it allows materialism to become more important than its inhabitants:

 “I’m living in a hypocritical and artificial society

 Worse than any war

 How can we refuse the world and escape from reality

 We can commit suicide and we can dream

 But the dream is more dangerous than reality…” (Christophe Karabache)
