Storyline

"Once upon a time there was a woman who lived on the back of a man's tongue..." When Belinda's father dies she decides to do what she has always wanted to: move to the city and become a writer. The move proves instantly significant because across the street from her new loft Belinda discovers two women she is immediately drawn towards: the elderly Violet, who has retired from publishing and understands what Belinda wants to become; and Suzanne, an artist whose new show has just opened and whose success Belinda wants to emulate. Suzanne, in turn, lives with Tony, a popular TV soap actor. However, their relationship is in trouble due to Tony's frustration at feeling trapped in a role that is bad for his career, but which pays too much to just walk away from. He's looking for an escape from his life - which is when Belinda catches his eye. Suddenly, Violet dies. This event causes Belinda and Suzanne to reappraise what they are doing with their lives. Suzanne responds by moving into her ... Written by Andrew Calder <info@thisisnotalovestory.com>

Something about the NZ Film Commission....
30 January 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

There is something wrong with the New Zealand Film Commission. Something very wrong. The script for this film is appalling, the dialog drags, the plot meanders through a myriad of clichéd situations - physical and meta-physical - and flounders on the inevitable disaster that is suggested from the first words.... "Once upon a time...." Keith Hill wanted to suggest the story as a fairy tale, all very good, but why would you automatically use the most clichéd device to imply this? All it signals to your viewer is that the film's production lacked vision, right from the very moment the write put pen to paper. This is why i wonder about the NZ Film Commission. Can't they see this? Its written on the page in front of them: as soon as anyone opens the script there it is in plain sight, words that suggest boldly and succinctly, "DO NOT READ ME - I AM VISIONLESS AND DULL." But that seems to be the desire of the Film Comm, the production of dull and stupid films that nobody particularly wants to watch as they are either pushed far to far in a commercial direction when they should be left to their own devices, or they green light the production of foul and clichéd scripts because they look on paper like a commercial proposition mainly because they aren't challenging, the reality is they are just rubbish. It makes me sad as a NZer.
