Relationship Terminus...hardly predictable
12 April 2003 | by (PA - USA) – See all my reviews

Viewed at 12th Philadelphia Film Festival.

Insightful. Captivating. For some maybe even retrospective. Certain things are difficult to rationalize, one undoubtedly is the aftermath of a relational breakup. This film, a mockumentary on the aforementioned, is brilliantly acute in capturing the emotional turmoil, the forced introspective process and the unpredictably of how people handle a breakup.

Many times one or both parties entertain a chess match trying to get the best move on the ex-partner. Moreover, others can crumble and eventually fall into a quagmire of despair. I was very pleased as these elements were shown with stark clarity. One could vicariously live the male and female split. And in fact...

The events that transpire run contrary to the proposed theory offered by the couple, Rob and Melanie, in the film (its premise) who state (Rob more confidently) since science statistically supports that romantic love ebbs at the 19 month mark; they will end their relationship gracefully and thus will not compromise either's dignity and/or chance dismissal of a continued friendship. Misguidedness. Great!!!
