It is all about the need for honest, meaningful and reciprocal relationships. The film examines this from a very broken point of view, where the characters have lost trust in themselves and in others. From this perspective, even hope is out of reach. Escape seems like the only choice as a means to cope with the pain and loneliness of lost or unattainable love.
As the title of the film implies, it is a clash between two opposing conditions, though one is not unlike the other. Both love and hate are passionate, stubborn and all encompassing emotions that determine a person’s direction. The slide from one extreme to the other is a massive transformation of ideals, beliefs, hopes and dreams. Set on the platform of an old train station, the characters of Love & Hate converge and struggle to untangle themselves from these two opposing conditions. Ultimately, it is about choice and the strength of ones character.
