Nick Love has become a pretty successful director by British standard, making a couple of good films, like Goodbye Charlie Bright and the Football Factory. Watching this story on the Football Factory DVD I don't understand why.
Love Story is like a bad episode of Eastenders. It focuses on Dave (Jamie Foreman) and his girlfriend Sharon (Patsy Palmer) who is giving birth to his baby. Nick Love paints a picture of drug use, criminality and prostitution. It is a grim film which doesn't even have a plot. I couldn't care about any of the characters during the short. The acting is sub-par. Patsy Palmer basically plays her character as Bianca Jackson with more swearing. There was no narrative structure in this film and a poor effort from Nick Love. It is not worth watching.
