The Best Lover is an artist film about Love, which is to be taken as a serious action towards new humanity. Self-love (falsely mixed up with narcissism) nourishes and cherishes one’s mental growth.

Barbarella is eager to give a lesson about love to  humankind. Collective Mind tries to define love by mining data. They, like everyone, struggle with communicating their loving practices. A change starts with a name and confession: I love myself, here, now, ad infinitum!
