Arsenic Is A Love Word

Original title: Arsenic est un mot d’amour
Author: Christophe Carlier

A bunch of people –all quite different to each other– are gathered in a nice little hotel on a Greek island. What could seem the perfect setting for an Agatha Christie novel, becomes a landscape of love, nostalgia and disputes.

Strange and paradoxical love stories start happening in this isolated island: the fascination of a woman for a girl, the passion of a girl for an adult, a parodic chick-lit novel, the posthumous feeling of a maid for a repulsed suitor, the inconsolable love of an apprentice magician for his benefactor…

Arsenic Is A Love Word is a tribute to mismatched couples, the charm and mystery of their love stories, and also a tribute to the enigmatic, slightly incomprehensible way of loving each other ―which belongs to them only.
