The ultimate film about the life and food of this popular shellfish. Much more than just a starter, their glue is also used by gynecologists to save unborn babies. Experience the full spectrum of mussels through the eyes of passionate enthusiasts. Shot on 35mm, spiced with underwater images by marine biologist Jean Painlevé.
"An enjoyably quirky film that is both informative and engaging, Mussels In Love should be an easy sale to broadcasters as well of possible interest to niche distributors."
