FOR LOVERS ONLY is a story of a MAN and a WOMAN in love. After seeing each other for the first time in years while on separate work assignments in Paris, the LOVERS flee together and travel by train, car and motorcycle, as their love affair takes them across France-from Normandy to St. Tropez. Throughout their trip, both characters experience long periods of carefree bliss and unrepentant joy punctuated by brief moments of guilt and confusion. The final outcome of the affair is left open to interpretation. - synopsis from IMDB

It’s actually quite stunning how few people have probably seen For Lovers Only (and will, because it’s hard to even get a copy), since it’s a very good movie with excellent acting to tell a beautiful story. It really only needs a cast listing of two, because it’s all about two people - in love. Not a lot of words needed. Beautiful lighting makes some of the scenes very ambiant and tangible.
This was created as an indie movie and still has the raw and pure quality of that origin. Easy recommendation!
