country: Belgium

running time: 24 min.


Beneath the sheets where a young couple lies from morning to evening, there were long swelling problems. Sometimes love itself is too little, even when one’s bedroom eyes say otherwise. An intimate film devoid of tabloid clichés that examines the bed of two lovers who can no longer run away from the inevitable truth.

“We don't know if our love outweighs the negativity of our dynamics.”


Lize Cuveele (b. 1997) graduated from the Royal Institute of Theater, Cinema and Sound (RITCS) in Brussels. Throughout her body of work, which includes a number of atmospheric documentary films, she focuses on the emotional world of her characters and examines socially relevant topics such as abortion, racism, and mental illness.
