Format: DVD
In A Year Without Love is a gritty, hard-edged movie about desire, illness and longing. Spanish director Anahi Berneri takes us into the leather - fetish - S & M underworld of Buenos Aires - yes, it does exist! And in the process conjures up one man's search for love in a world where it seems as though it's almost impossible to connect.

A Year Without Love is set in 1996, just as the new AIDS cocktails were being released. Unfortunately, the handsome thirty-year-old writer and poet Pablo (Juan Minujin) is suspicious of the drugs that might stave off the AIDS-related illnesses that are slowly killing him. Determined to maintain his health through natural remedies, Pablo embarks on a series of herbal remedies.

In realty, he's racing against time as a crippling illness - in the form of pneumonia - threatens to take hold of him. Living in a state of denial, he lives with his aunt in a rather squalid little apartment and is supported by his father. He meanders through life, disengaged from his sexual partners, his family, his feelings about a former lover and the disease that he suffers from.

By day Pablo teaches French lessons and by night he trolls the streets of Buenos Aires looking for love in porn theatres and sex clubs, sometimes frequenting the local disco with is best friend. He takes out a personal advertisement in the local rag, hoping to connect with a dominant masculine man and eventually ends up joining a private S&M club where he becomes a sort of voyeur, never really participating but never really staying on the sidelines.

The sex scenes actually make up a small portion of the film and ironically serve to highlight the fact that Pablo does find love in the most unusual place.

Format: DVD
'Un Ano sin amor' (A Year Without Love) is a brave little Argentine film by young Buenos Aires director Anahi Berneri, a film that takes a different look at people with AIDS in the era of 1996 when the AIDS cocktail was just becoming a beacon of hope suggesting that afflicted people could survive. Though some may avoid the film because of content and the world of Sadomasochism it depicts, this little low budget movie has a lot to say in a very simple fashion and deserves the attention of caring viewers.

Pablo Perez (the very fine actor Juan Minujin) is a young magazine writer/ French teacher/ poet living with AIDS (he has returned form Paris where he had been living with his lover who died of AIDS). Pablo lives with his aunt in a poor apartment supported by his distant father, and while he knows he has a disease that dooms his future, he tries to continue his life day by day with no major plans. He attempts to have a social life by advertising on the Internet for dating, but because he includes the information in his ad that he is HIV positive, he gets negligible response. When his symptoms increase and he is burdened with a constant cough and respiratory problems he visits his doctor who recommends hospitalization. Pablo does not trust the 'new meds' and refuses AZT etc. He walks the streets seeking anonymous encounters with men to satisfy his longing for physical connection and resorts to joining a sadomasochism group where he meets men who are willing to interact only on a physical level. In his loneliness he turns to his friend with the idea of publishing his diary about a man living with AIDS, yet when the book is published the results only serve to alienate his family further and he is left with nothing in a life of loneliness.

If one is after steamy scenes or explicit eroticism, it would be unreasonable going further a DVD jacket of Buenos Aires AIDS-fighting journalist's cinematography-translated dairies published.

A search for pleasure a S&M submissive participant does dismantles, probably, one of the most hidden corners of a human reality while being presented much artistically than Frisk, suitable for a general audience-viewers broadening the minds on sex, same gender affairs and HIV issues.
