BANALITY OF LOVE

In Brussels I went to see the movie Hannah Arendt, a movie which I expected to be great, but which disappointed me somehow. It wasn't
 the story I expected, but what intrigued me most was Hannah’s complicated love-affair. Why was she so attracted to Martin Heidegger, did she just adore him as a teacher, the way most students did? According to Wiki their affair only lasted a year, according to others it lasted a lifetime. I guess their affair proves one can be objective and philosophical about totalitarianism, but one cannot be objective about love. Perhaps love is the ultimate form of totalitarianism.
