Why watch this film?
A violent and repulsive horror story can be, at the same time, a love story? Director Luca Guadagnino is back to propose this possibility with 'Bones and All', which successfully mixes the bloody horror of his movie 'Suspiria' with the tender sensuality of 'Call Me by Your Name', presenting with total authenticity and credibility a story about two young lovers who succumb to their cannibalistic instincts. The genre mix may be a bit shocking for some, but it is a well-crafted experiment by Guadagnino (winner of the Silver Lion of Venice for Best Director) that reaches both while resonating with its deep metaphor of youth alienation.
A story of first love between Maren, a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages and trap doors of Ronald Reagan's America. But despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.
