The title of the film was inspired by the headlines of the yellow press. Right from the start the title is literal: a young, lower middle class man kills his father and mother and goes to the movies... to see Lost in Love. From then on the film-within-a-film takes over. Fiction and fact blend into each other and it is no longer clear on what level of “reality” –or of the imaginary– we are existing. The film gets rid of the usual parameters of representation and the stories overflow their boundaries, that usually circumscribe action.
