"Warriors of Love" is my campaign against those who reject love. A campaign against the sceptics of the heart and the ultraconservatives of romance. Against the cowards who cool things down when they meet love. Against the killjoys who prefer their love served at room temperature and in small portions. Against the rationalists who want reasonable love. Sensible love. Disciplined love that behaves properly.
The film is a tribute to excessive love. To obsessive love. To love that calls for sacrifices, scars and gunshot wounds. To love that hurts and heals, that is responsible for miracles and tragedies. Love that makes blood boil, that pushes the lover over the edge of a cliff. Love that leads to unrest, damage and trouble where there was once dead silence and neatly trimmed hedges. Love that runs amok and causes riots in the streets. Hopelessly impossible love that gives life and costs lives.
Love that doesn’t just go to the limit, but far beyond the limit. Love that runs confused in drunken madness, that lies in the gutter with a knife in its heart. Love that refuses to take no for an answer, that doesn’t give a damn about cautionary words and only speaks the language of love:
“I want to – no – I will – no – I MUST love!”
