Primo amore (2004)

AKA First Love

Vittorio is looking for his ideal woman. He meets Sonia, a sweet pleasant intelligent girl. A goldsmith by trade, Vittorio is obsessed with the desire to shape Sonia’s body and mind as he shapes gold with fire. Their relationship grows into a reciprocal masochistic game. When the two lovers isolate themselves in a house in the Italian countryside, they dangerously lose touch with reality and the rest of the world. (IMDb – Sujit R. Varma)

Set in northern Italy and in the darkest recesses of a woman’s heart, Matteo Garrone’s “Primo Amore” is a horror movie about desire and the toxic pursuit of perfection. When Sonia (Michela Cescon) and Vittorio (Vitaliano Trevisan) meet on a blind date she is initially overly eager, he is altogether aloof; given how Venusians and Martians usually align, that should mean they were made for each other. While stung by a comment he makes (he thought she would be thinner), Sonia still goes out with Vittorio. From her anxious gaze it seems clear she very much wants, maybe even needs to forgive him. Sonia, as it turns out, is a woman who loves men too much and herself too little; Vittorio, in turn, is a man who would love Sonia more if there were much less of her to love. Which is how, within a strangely short time, the two are living together and one of them is on a very regrettable diet. (— Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).
