Storyline

The story of a broke but talented composer, Mike, and his search for true love. The question is, how to find it, especially when your insecurities tends to make you jealous even when a girlfriend strokes your cat. Mike's alcoholic writer father who believes all his ills will be cured by finding his runaway wife, tells him there is only one thing that makes life worth living: "the empress"; perfect sex that goes on for days with a woman so beautiful you could cry. To Mike, however, the empress is love that lasts forever, not sex that lasts for days. Written by Anette Rosberg <anette.rosberg@malmo.se>

A very perceptive comedy
3 November 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

'So this is Romance' uniquely looks at men as the weaker sex, portraying them as maybe the way they really are underneath all that surface bravado. Above all by turning the tables for a change this film manages to reveal some fascinating and very amusing male views on the fairer sex. The protagonists Reece Dinsdale and John Hannah are walking disasters when to comes to women, and this is what makes the film all the more amusing. Many situations ring a bell when it comes to the trials and tribulations of relationships, the women Clara Bellar and Victoria Smurfitt are perfect opposites for Mike, making you realize his dilemma. Mike's drunk father beautifully played by Frank Finlay, gives you every reason to believe that the future is as hopeless as his when it comes to finding true love. A lovely witty movie.
