(Per)Versions of Love

International documentary films “about love” available from 14 to 20 February for free at

As part of the online film display about various (per)versions of love, the portal presents 10 films for free. One of the most successful Danish films from the past years, Mechanical Love, deals with the strong emotional bond between people and robots. Blind Loves by Juraj Lehotský is a fragile parable about most intimate emotions and feelings of blind people; the film was awarded at the Cannes film festival. By means of amateur family films, the powerful story of Josef and Marie is told on the backdrop of turbulent historical events in Czechoslovakia in the film With Kisses from Your Love, a part of the successful cycle Private Century by Jan Šikl. Perverted forms of love between people and their pets are captured in the provocative and brutal stage-managed documentary Animal Love by Ulrich Seidl. More at

The portal offers an all-year selection of more than 500 documentary and experimental films for streaming and download. By means of a free registration, you can enjoy a number of benefits, such as the unique chance of watching 10 films of your choice for 3 Euro only, or the possibility to charge your credit and download films without any other payment transactions until the exhaustion of the credit. Another novelty is the possibility to pay the fees by means of the PayPal payment system or the function allowing you to send any of the films as a personal gift.
