As a subject in philosophy, a trope in literature, and a most common theme in cinema, love is a master signifier in language for all its unsatisfactory definitions. Looking at various cinematic productions, this course explores the idea of love as a sign of being as well as non-being, as both confirmation and destabilisation of identity at once; hence, as an attraction and a danger.
