Taste of Life (2006)

Original title: Elu maitse

Animation Duration 11:40

The connection between love and food is examined in the film Taste of Life. Like the food chain, the love chain also exists – in order to love someone, that someone must also love. And just like the food chain, the love chain is also circular and ends where it starts. Through black humour, the film attempts to dissect the nature of love and to arrive at an understanding of what life tastes like.
