On a laid-back summer day, a young woman spends some time with her casual partner. Irmak Akgur directs “Limerence,” a slice-of-life portrait that flows in uninhibited vignettes. Minimally plotted but tonally sharp, Akgur’s film captures a couple of free spirits in their element — spending the day preening, dancing in the sun, making love. Built with convincing intimacy and naturalism, it culminates in a moment of carnal revelation. -KA. Director, Writer, Cinematographer: Irmak Akgur. Producer: Leticia Cohen. Cast: Zeynep Kalender, Elias Gu.
