pleasure and pain

A film by Judith König

The Science of Love

Love can change our lives – in the truest sense of the word. Recent scientific studies prove that love is more than a feeling. It is a drive that transforms our brain and our body profoundly. This film shows the fascinating science behind what love is, what it does to us – and whether it is good for us at all.
