The Passion of Martin

Director: Alexander Payne
Screenwriters: Alexander Payne

Institute History

  • 1991 Sundance Film Festival


Martin is in trouble. He is in love. If you’ve ever felt passion, you know how it can rattle even the most rational of men. This wonderfully crafted, brilliantly paced black comedy is an escapade through Martin’s deepest doubts and fears.
