Sound by Yoko Ono "I have seen a number of Japanese avant-garde films at Brussels International Experimental Film Festival, at Cannes and at other places. Of all those films, Iimura's LOVE stands out in its very beauty and originality, a film poem, with no usual pseudo-surrealist imagery. Closest comparison would be Brakhage's LOVING or Jack Smith's FLAMING CREATURES. ... [A] poetic and sensuous exploration of the body ... fluid, direct, beautiful." -- Jonas Mekas, Film Culture
