Sleepless in New York

Switzerland, 2013, Colour, 92 min

Paralyzing tormenting and overwhelming...Often laughed off as nothing more than an affliction of adolescence, lovesickness becomes the topic of a sensitive and compelling documentary film. Film dives into the frenzied nights of three newly rejected. Nights full of pain and tears, yet also wakefulness and creativity. Renowned anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher reveals the astounding and profound processes that unfold in the brain of the lovesick. She says: "The game of love matters. It matters big time." Exploring the difficult path out of self-destructive obsessive behavior, toward a new self, Sleepless in New York is a film for those in love, out of love or looking for love.
