19 Months takes a comic look at a young couple who believe that romantic love has an expiry date. Rather than stay in a relationship past its due date they have decided to break up. In order to avoid the usual pain, jealousy and loneliness so many others go through during a break up Rob and Melanie have agreed to stay together until each of them has found a new partner. So confident are they in this process they have invited a documentary filmmaker to help show the world their "new and better way." Unfortunately for Rob and Melanie they are about to show the world something entirely different. Written by
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!!!
