Totally captivating - a perfectly cast lead makes this effortlessly enjoyable
bob the moo from United Kingdom
7 December 2002
A girl in her mid twenties is interviewed by a documentary maker. He asks
her about love and she details several of the main relationships she has
been in but yet still finds herself looking for that perfect someone that
will be the love of her life.
In the wrong hands this film could easily have been a little too mushy and
romantic. It looks at the diverse relationships a woman has had as she
pursues her idea of a perfect love. The dialogue occasionally shows how
terrible this COULD have been by dropping the odd line that is a bit
but it overcomes this well.
The direction of the various segments is clever and well done - different
for each one but still holding together. The film is clever and involving
but it owes a huge debt to the casting process. The lead actress is, and
can't stress this enough, PERFECT for the role. She makes the whole thing
work. She is so natural and bubbly that I was instantly engaged in her
character (covering the odd iffy line). I can't imagine a better person
the lead - She totally took the audience with her.
Overall this could have been sappy but so many factors make it so much
better than that. The direction is good and the lead actress is perfectly
cast, beautiful and natural. This short is just like a ray of sunshine
I cannot stress how worth while it is to track it down.
