Crazy Love

Synopsis: Three 'Bukowskian' torrid nights in the life of a man in search of love. Harry Voss, 12, is young and naive. Love, for him, is romantic love between princes and princesses demurely kissing each other on the mouth. His father is a hero who kidnapped his mother and married her on a lonely mountain peak... Later on, he'll do the same. But Harry has a lot to learn. He also learns that there are handsome men and ugly ones, that love can be unfair. That one can find comfort in drinking... but above all he learns that man is capable of anything - absolutely anything! - to get his fair share of love.

You'll see. Come on

- Who is?


I made a date with her

I'll go first. Then we'll swap

- But I don't know her

- That doesn't matter

But I don't feel anything for her

That won't stop you doing it

She won't want me

She's not like Lisa.

Marina likes doing it... with everyone

She knows you're part of the deal

- Really?

- Yes. I'll be quick, OK?

I'll need some more soon

You can have more right now

Have you taken a pill?

No, but I've got a friend.

He's waiting outside

Do I know him?

He's a sensitive boy. A poet

A poet?

- All right?

- Well, if you can't do it

Your turn

- You sure she wants me?

- Yes, she's ready for you

Come on, little poet.

I'm getting cold


Finished already?

Look, Frankenstein.

If you're trying to be funny...

- Incredible! You did it

- Yes, with shit paper

Any whisky left?

- In the car

- Take me home

Here, let me

Go on

Drive on!

I live right there

But I can't make it

Can't you carry me in?

I really can't make it

Is that yours?

It's my poem

Where did you get it?

On a train

You can keep it.

I don't need it anymore

Have a heart,

carry me indoors

I can hear it beating...

So you have got one

- Bill!

- Harry!

- Where have you been?

- Vacation

For how long?

Three months in prison,

eight months in jail...

And how are you?

I'm thirsty... and broke



I'm tired

I live nearby.

I'm looking after someone's house


Who I don't know

and who doesn't know me

- Dare we?

- For old times' sake

- We never dared before

- You never dared!

Let me do it

Nice place

So we did it

It weighed less than I thought

It was mellow

Charles Bukowski

Henry Charles Bukowski (born Heinrich Karl Bukowski; August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles. His work addresses the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over 60 books. The FBI kept a file on him as a result of his column, Notes of a Dirty Old Man, in the LA underground newspaper Open City.Bukowski published extensively in small literary magazines and with small presses beginning in the early 1940s and continuing on through the early 1990s. As noted by one reviewer, "Bukowski continued to be, thanks to his antics and deliberate clownish performances, the king of the underground and the epitome of the littles in the ensuing decades, stressing his loyalty to those small press editors who had first championed his work and consolidating his presence in new ventures such as the New York Quarterly, Chiron Review, or Slipstream." Some of these works include his Poems Written Before Jumping Out of an 8 Story Window, published by his friend and fellow poet Charles Potts, and better known works such as Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame. These poems and stories were later republished by John Martin's Black Sparrow Press (now HarperCollins/Ecco Press) as collected volumes of his work. In 1986 Time called Bukowski a "laureate of American lowlife". Regarding Bukowski's enduring popular appeal, Adam Kirsch of The New Yorker wrote, "the secret of Bukowski's appeal. . . [is that] he combines the confessional poet's promise of intimacy with the larger-than-life aplomb of a pulp-fiction hero."Since his death in 1994, Bukowski has been the subject of a number of critical articles and books about both his life and writings, despite his work having received relatively little attention from academic critics during his lifetime. more…
