This hyper-stylized, farcically dark tale deals with love and hate, femininity and aging, strong friendship, and the ability to say goodbye.
Madam Yankelova’s Fine Literature Club is a secret ladies-only club, whose members despise men and live their life according to their motto – “there is no true love.” The club members lure attractive men into joining them for dinner, after which they are promptly murdered and ground into hotdog meat. When Sophie, an aging member of the club, meets a young attractive man named Joseph, she must choose between using him to rise through the club’s ranks and become a Lordess, or her last chance for true love. This debut film by Guilhad Emilio Schenker is inspired by the dark themes of the novella “The Mistress and the Peddler” by Nobel Award Laurate Agnon.
