Love is a crazy thing. Sometimes it can be sweet and tender, other times an all-consuming nightmare. Alleluia presents a deadly love affair that is a smothering and exhaustive experience. It begins with good intentions then reveals a dark underbelly that sends its audience down one messed up rabbit hole of obsession, fetishes and dependency issues. Director Fabrice Du Welz (Calvaire) blindsides you with his aesthetic decisions making Alleluia one nutty, enthralling experience.
Gloria (Lola Duenas) is a single mom who is fitfully putting herself back out on the dating market. We know little about her previous relationship, but it really, really did not go well.
