In classic comedic style four film students attempt to create a film that will prove whether love exists or not. The entire film is based on a bet between two of the filmmakers, Jeremy and Brian. Jeremy is out to prove that love is a sham, and if he wins his friend Brian must break-up with his beautiful girlfriend Grace. While Brian is out to prove that love is alive and well, and if he wins Jeremy must find himself a girlfriend. With their two buddies Carlo and Ian in tow, the boys set-out to prove that in love, nothing is for sure. Written by
I bet you that I can make a film that will prove that romantic love is nothing more than a psychological, biological genetic affliction. And that is passed on through both the sacred and secular institutions from generation to generation as not only a means to control the population but as a way to give purpose to life itself.

A laugh riot from the opening credits, Love Disease surprised me every step of the way. I caught this film while it was showing at the Jamerican Film Festival in Jamaica, and I can say I'm glad I did.
Not in a while have I seen a film that was able to slowly draw me in the more I watched. The film opens with the lead character Jeremy finding his girlfriend in bed with his best friend. As a result he becomes an extremely bitter individual, and takes on the task of making a film that will prove love is a myth. In turn, his friend Brian bets Jeremy he can make a movie that will actually prove the opposite, that love is real. So they go out to make this film with their friends.
Jeremy comes upon this footage of a young bitter woman but he doesn't know her name or number. He believes if he finds her, it will prove once and for all that love isn't real. So he starts putting up flyers to find her, and in turn the entire city freaks out over the flyers. I don't want to ruin the rest of the film but what ensues is hilarious.
Love Disease is what independent filmmaking has lacked over the last year, originality. And I especially loved the young cast who added such depths to the characters. The writing was excellent as well, on par with independent films like Clerks and Brothers McMullen. If it comes to a theater near you, check it out.
