    • Synopsis
    • What are you doing when you understand that you are starting loosing? Loosing someone dear, loosing an object that you care of, loosing the self-confidence.
      How one is able to cope with the avalanche of information around.
      People, family, friends, acquaintances, professionals or just good-will passer-bys are bombing you with controversial opinions on your dilemma.
      And finally you are left alone in taking the decision.
      That's basically what For Love & With Best Intentions is about.
      We are following the whole ordeal Alex is going through. In addition he is an emotional, quite neurotic character for whom quick decision affecting his beloved ones is too much to handle during these mad 5 days of his life.
      His quite calm existence is perturbed in a quiet late morning by a phone call announcing that his Mother has had a cerebral attack. She seems fine - the Father says but... she is almost 500 km away, she can't talk for the moment... What's to be done? Jump in a train & go there - And so it starts this speed chase in between the people around having the Best Intentions & Alex that is unable to pick up the good from bad, to accumulate this amount of information coming from all around, the time is either too long (until he is getting there) & too short (to make his mind up)
      Arriving at the hospital in not making things better - here there are other people competing in their Best Intentions - mainly different Doctors.
      The atmosphere is burlesque, a kind of human Zoo as comical as dramatic, full of unexpected characters & situations.
      The friends are not different from this Global Absurd Theatre. And our Hero should react properly in all this chaos. He is doing slalom in between all the opinions & reactions, but he is going more & more crazy & of course is doing also mistakes -For Love & With Best Intentions.
      Apparently this black comedy "road movie inside a hospital" is having a happy ending. But in reality the paranoia the main character develops is much worse than the little accident his Mother experienced.
      The alert tone & the funny situations as well as the touch of almost fantastic apparitions in the story are giving finally a feel good movie with a punch in the stomach.
      A film that is entertaining but in the same time dramatic, a film that is not offering solutions as much as is raising questions of the nowadays society - a world where we are communicating (virtually a lot, but the word of mouth is still the most powerful), talking non-stop as much as in the end we are unable to hear or just we don't want to hear anymore.
