LOVE RITUAL (1990) Aldo Lado's cannibal love story
LOVE RITUAL (1990) Aldo Lado\'s cannibal love story

Is Cannibalism the Ultimate Love Ritual?


director: Aldo Lado
starring: Beatrice Ring · Larry Huckmann · Francesco Casale · Natalia Bizzi · Valerie Bouc


Aldo Lado's seldom seen film is based on the true story that made headlines in the mid 1980s... the story of a relationship that had gone the limits: A Japanese man who had turned his French girlfriend into sushi. It was discovered - according to the arresting officers in France - he had eaten various body parts as proof for their profound passion. This project was a divergence for filmmaker Lado who had delivered numerous state-of-the-art Euro thrillers including SHORT NIGHT OF THE GLASS DOLLS and WHO SAW HER DIE?. He had been attracted to the story and wrote the script for producer Alessandro Signetto in 1988. In turn, the production company gave him the green light to shoot the film.

The film is set in Berlin where young Japanese Yuro falls in love with a self-absorbed dancer Valerie. They become obsessed with each other, and the intensity of their relationship crescendos into a sharing of each other's flesh. Spoiler alert: It doesn't end well.
