Clara Larrain’s Chilean production outfit Clara Films has optioned screen rights to Argentinian writer Tatiana Goransky’s novel To Love You Less (Quisiera Amarte Menos).
The novel centres on the perspectives of six characters as they navigate their way through an emotionally and sexually heightened plot.
“I read Tatiana’s book during the pandemic and for a while I couldn’t decide if I loved it or if it was just too uncomfortable. But the fact is, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I knew I needed to adapt it to the screen,” said Larrain, who will serve as executive producer and, working closely with Goransky, assemble a team of writers and creatives.
“Tatiana’s raw writing does not obey any rule or genre and speaks directly to human instincts. She doesn’t judge her characters, she just lets them be. I hope that this adaptation entertains and at the same time opens questions, makes people laugh, love, cry, feel lust.”
”Clara approached me for the first time in 2021, when the book was released in Argentina,” said Goransky. “At that moment, I was in the middle of a small bidding war for the rights of To Love You Less but didn’t feel that the artistic side of the project was being taken care of, so I ended up not signing with any of the other producers.
