We see love, we touch it with our hand in Out of Love. Nikolai and Varya meet and recognize each other, but this is not enough. True love can not shy away from confrontation, from the fight. They put into play themselves, and their own ways of being, with their frailties, fears and needs. Feeding each other in a complete and absolute way is not easy. The first work by Paloma Aguilera Valdebenito reflects, with mature introspection, the happiness and despair of a relationship between two people in a continuous and perpetual balance between intensity and defeat. The impossibility of commitment, the awareness that no one else we meet will be like the person we are losing, is the heartbreaking truth that this film gives us.
