In the chaos of a pandemic-disrupted Milan airport, strangers Lucky (Hannah Hoekstra) and Miles (James Krishna Floyd) almost miss each other. But the romantic impulse wins out: Lucky swipes Miles’s luggage tag, and this becomes a lifeline for the both of them during the dark, isolating early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Directed by the prolific Paula van der Oest (Tonio, EUFF 2018), this long-distance relationship unfolds completely within the oasis (or purgatory) of the computer screen. Consider it a You’ve Got Mail for the always-online era. “[Lucky and Miles] are opposite personalities: she is a playful perfume maker and trampoline jumper, he is a somewhat inhibited ICT professional and nature photographer … Love in a Bottle is remarkably intimate; a privilege of the (emergency) chosen form ... [It] captures something essential about digital contact, which sometimes makes conversations less veiled and more honest” (Bor Beekman, De Volkskrant). In English.
