It comes to light as a side effect of a psychological screening of all personnel working in the slaughterhouse, that the two main protagonists have identical dreams at night with said two deer in a forest. Initially, they both consider it unbelievable. And the resident psychologist even assumes that she is the victim of a practical joke, and does not believe it either. Their disbelief ends when they compare notes, and observe the similarities as well as the progress in the dreams, in hindsight easy to be derived from our knowledge what to look for as the couple grows closer together in cautious steps.
All in all, the screenplay demonstrates very well how the two main protagonists get attracted to each other, and how the rest of the slaughterhouse staff behaves around them.

They are not exactly outcasts but not an integral part of the social structure either, so gossip and unfriendly comments are to be expected. The slow progress in their courtship is juxtaposed with the two deer in their respective dreams who come closer together in tiny steps. It is all very unusual, but one never gets the feeling that it is too far-fetched. Explore popular and recently added TV series available to stream now with Prime Video.

Nominated for 1 Oscar. Learn more More Like This. Loveless The Square Comedy Drama. Andrew Lapin. It's a slow, quiet and beautifully composed story about human connection, or more specifically, the difficulty in finding it. Gail Tolley. It's one for the quietly desperate - a grim fairytale that suggests it's possible to keep the wolf from the door. Charlotte O'Sullivan. It's a haunting film, with the blood, the dreams and the deer, but never wilfully obscure.
Just slightly off kilter. Like life. Kevin Maher.
The premise of the film and its unwatchably brutal opening sequences are there to stun you, or in the butcher's sense tenderise you, so that you hardly notice the implausible weirdness of human behaviour in the workplace scenes that follow. Peter Bradshaw.

It is occasionally alienating, even off-putting, but what these two souls find beyond their own bodies is something deeply beautiful indeed. Matthew Lucas. I'm filing it under Amelie in my fantasy rolodex of overrated and ultimately empty films. I choose to remember the delicious cheese sandwich I ate immediately after, instead.
Tara Judah. There is a real tinge of sadness to On Body and Soul, which serves as a quaint allegory on dating in the age of Tinder: a hint that visiting mysterious strangers in our dreams is at times as close we get to intimacy. Ela Bittencourt. On Body And Soul becomes a deterministically romantic vision of love. Beautiful, but much like its snowy forest grove, ultimately empty.
Alexa Dalby. On Body and Soul is the power of dreams manifested, mixed with crushing reality of languid love, an emotion with as many mixed signals as the fantasies they're meant to evoke. Robert Daniels. Partially shot in a real slaughterhouse, the film is visually and conceptually both beautiful and viscerally sickening, a fascinating exploration of loneliness and attention in an unusual environment.
