La casa dell'amore

La casa dell'amore
by Luca Ferri
Country: Italy
Year: 2020
Duration: 77'

Bianca is a 39-year-old transsexual woman. She lives in Milan since 2009 and she is a prostitute. She is engaged since twenty years to Natasha, a trans of Japanese origin who lives temporarily in Brazil. For work and family reasons they haven't seen each other for almost two years, though their bond is very strong and the distance hasn't weakened it. Showed at Berlinale 2020, the documentary is about their love story made up of long phone calls and even longer waits.
