Movie InfoIn this arty rather free-form drama, a struggling independent filmmaker attempting to make an art film becomes shattered when her backers suddenly drop her film. She becomes so devastated by the rejection that she attempts to end her life. Television segments of recent political assassinations are shown to parallel the death of artistic freedom. Viva, Eddie Constantine and Peter Bogdonavich also appear in this symbolic feature of creative control and executive ignorance.

Critic Reviews for Lions Love
The result is a pleasant, sometimes humorous blend of style and technique that ultimately is unsuccessful.
There is so much that is so pleasant in Lions Love that I wish Miss Varda hadn't tried to give it a larger significance.
Varda's film teeters on the edge of total absurdity, running roughshod over cinematic conventions of all kinds while retaining a lucid outsider's perspective on its milieu.
The Design for Living hippiness saunters on, cramming in zeitgeist, Le Bonheur triangulation, and whoever happened to be on the set
