Living On Love Alone review

A sensual portrait of reckless young love

Heeding Jean-Luc Godard’s maxim that all you need to make a movie is a “girl and a gun”, Isabelle Czajka’s freewheeling feature is built around a captivating turn from French rising star Anaïs Demoustier.

She plays Julie, a bright arts graduate flitting between unsatisfactory PR and sales jobs in Paris. Enter charming drifter Ben (Pio Marmaï), who offers the opportunity to break free of the everyday grind and head to the remote south of France.

Propelled by music from The Kills, this scores as both a satire of today’s business world and a sensual portrait of reckless young love.
