About the film:
Love can be different, everyone understands it in its own way, but when a person meets his/her soulmate, one never makes a mistake that it is true love. Not everyone may get to know it, but everyone dreams about it.
True love, which is born long before current life and carried through many lives, is not easy. It carries a load of past vows, obligations and resentments. Therefore, quite often, soulmates cannot be together. Experiencing a strong craving for each other they are afraid of the pain and frustration that they might have experienced in past lives.
The film „Loved” is about a story where one soul is ready to work through traumatic experience, and the other is not ready. One person is ready to accept and forgive, and the other does not believe in the concept of reincarnation.
The film is a kind of therapy where it’s important to say: be not afraid of complicated relationships, work on them, be patient and you will know yourself better and will get to feel the depth of true love.
Past lives in the film will be shown through animation, which gives more opportunities for interpreting different epochs and heroes.
After the premiere of her stage production, Anna meets Maxim. They both feel that they have known each other for donkey’s years. They begin to socialise, but the development of their relationship is complicated. Anna gets to a psychologist – regression practitioner, where she learns that her problems lie beyond this life. Anna agrees to undergo a regression therapy session, during which she remembers that she and Maxim have met in their past lives and swore to love each other forever. In the present life Anna once again tries to fulfil her promise.
We think that our film will help to be more attentive to the people we meet on our way; and to love, which is not always mutual and happy.
