Love is a Gun (2023)

Sobre o filme

Since his release from prison, Sweet Potato has been content with running a small business with meagre earnings by the seaside, headless of others people’s advice against it. He is pulled into the whirlpool of his past when his old “boss” (whom he has never met), his mother (who trusts all her debts upon him), and his buddy Maozi all re-appear into his life. One after the other, they regain control over his present life leaving him no hope for the future. Only Seven can assuage his anxieties ever so slightly.

Winner of the Lion of the Future “Luigi De Laurentiis” Award for a debut film at the Venice International Film Festival.
