Product Description

A family's dangerous legacy unravels as a mother's desperate wartime choices haunt the lives and loves of her sons. In 1990's New York, her eldest son (Josh Lucas) finds a way out of his tailspin of one night stands and scams when he befriends a charming co-worker (Adam Brody), while his brother (Lukas Haas) struggles in a compulsive, co-dependent relationship with their mother (Jacqueline Bisset). Death in Love is a darkly sensual exploration of the ties that bind.

Honestly, I rented this because I find Josh Lucas to have an emotional honesty lacking in most actors and I look for his work. He did not disappoint, nor did the rest of the cast. I had an instinct that this film would be hard to watch because I countered it with "Have you heard about the Morgans"..so I was not wrong to pair it with this film. It has a rare sexual rawness that is disturbing, and images of concentration camp experiments that sicken your heart. For all the nakedness and sex, it actually told an important part of the story for a change. It's about how the horror of one young woman's experience of being abandoned by her family in Nazi Germany, to be put in a concentration camp, falling in love with a German doctor, abandoned again, then how it affects her two sons lives years later. It is a film that left ME to think through what I saw, and it brought up feelings about my own experiences, and it left me feeling like I'd seen a story told which has the potential to heal. The purpose of art. A commercial movie is all neatly wrapped up in a non offensive package with how to feel and interpret it, whereas here I was watching their story but interested in my own reactions and judgements and 'allowing' myself to watch this movie with the curtains open...I took an acting class and was fascinated how it felt to explore that process...and this film made me feel that intensity like no other film ever has...it was only after watching the actors and the director's comments about how they felt, that I see that for them it was that same feeling...the terror doing something that makes you want to run the other direction, but once you do it, you have a fierceness no one can take away.Read more ›

This film is not for every one becouse it will shock,offend,and psychologically assult you. It might even show you the dark place you might be in but dont want to see and what could happen if you don't get out of it. If you are attracted to films that are psychologically dark, surreal,and uncompromising like the works of Luis Buneul, David Lynch, and Claude Chabral then this film is for you. This films commentary is a must listen to if what the film is about flew over your head. I viewed it on blu ray its a bit grainy but if you get engrossed in the story like i did you will not notice it.

This is an awesome movie. It's unique, and definitely not your conventional action or drama, but it's remarkably well done.

It's also a definite R+. If you are scared off by horror, gore, or violence, much less sex and more sex, don't buy it. However, for the adults in the audience, it's awesome. I highly recommend it to those who want to watch a good movie and are not scared off by archaic moral or ethics systems.

Why are we the way we are? Why do we do what we do? What and who makes us who we are? Why do some of us endure (and become damaged by) dysfunctional families while others just walk away? Why do we engage in self-destructive, self-defeating behaviors?

Is it our parents' fault? Our mother's? Is that saying "the apple never falls far from the tree" really true? Are we doomed? Are we prisoners of our past? Are we prisoners of our role model's past? How much damage can and/or should a mother inflict on her sons?

How far will we go in order to just survive? Do we owe anything at all to anyone adversely affected by that struggle for survival? If we use others in trying to save ourselves, comfort ourselves, do we owe them anything?

Some of the scenes from the NAZI concentration camp were too graphic for me to watch. Some of the S&M scenes were difficult to watch much less understand.

Most memorable for me was watching Josh Lucas' character's facial and body reactions to Adam Brody's character when Adam teaches Josh to dance. Amazing.

Normally I would not rate a BD this high if it has nothing to offer for hidef clarity and sound, but the performances by everyone here make it a higher rating. The content is extremely disturbing, from that beginning montage of lovemaking and human butchery, to that last scene of misery, pain and release. I had been warned ahead of time to expect extreme dysfunction in all of the relationships shown, from the concentration camps to 1990s NY, so hopefully this will help a little.

The story follows a concentration camp survivor, later played by Bisset, who with her two sons (played very well by Brody and Lucas) fill a life of guilt, morose relationships and shallow emotions. As the story progresses we are intermittently subjected to harsh visuals from the war years to modern day abusive lovemaking. A difficult watch through and through, but it should not detract from the believability of the performances. The BD clarity is non-existent in all scenes, with prevalent grain and focus issues from the hand-helds at various times. The sound was selectable between standard 5.1 and DTS, which is used with most clarity in that final scene. The supplements are thorough and include:

* 5 interviews totaling 11:39 minutes, all lodef. Main cast and crew discuss their reasons for being in/making the film. Has a play all option.
* 5 featurettes totaling 26:18 minutes, intermittent HD clarity in some of the interviews and behind the scenes shots, most lodef. Play all option. The longest featurette contains interviews from all of the parties akin to the lengthy lovemaking requirements. Probably the rawest input you will hear from this many actors about doing these kinds of scenes.
