    A stylistic fantasy never seen before on screen, transformed into a visual orgy that is both intoxicating and stunning.

    Roberto Oggiano, Cineuropa

    Teeming with more big ideas in its short running time than some directors manage in their careers, maverick filmmaker Lluis Minarro’s LOVE ME NOT manages, by virtue of being structured by the biblical story of Salome, to end up being not only challenging, but elegantly compact, too.
