BBC Press Release
Starring David Tennant and Emilia Fox, Love Virtually by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer is a thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference – its protagonists Emmi Rothner and Leo Leike communicate exclusively by email.
They ‘meet’ when Emmi mistakenly sends an email to Leo’s inbox. A romance ensues that allows them to live out a shared secret life far removed from their day-to-day existences. The story asks to what extent the relationship relies on fantasy and escapism and whether it will it survive a real life meeting.
The problem is Emmi is married – but does a virtual affair ‘count’ as adultery?
The tale questions whether it’s possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never met – and explores the implications of anonymity in cyberspace.
