A powerful international army assigns a regiment the task of guarding a mysterious man, held in a maximum security prison in the middle of the desert. Soldier Salome, daughter of Commander Antipas, becomes obsessed with him – Eros and Thanatos together reminding us that truth is based on beauty and love. A reverie on the edge of ambivalence and gender.
„Bravely stepping into the shoes of Salome adaptations from the high-art likes of Richard Strauss, Lindsay Kemp and, of course, Oscar Wilde, Love Me Not is dark but playful, and above all clear-eyed in its view of the perversions of war.”
