Real lives in the real world
31 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to admit to being a little sceptical when I first saw this movie

  • it seemed just a touch unbelievable. But what I found was a film that


actually raises an issue that faces many young people today, namely how to meet new people and, possibly, find love in a big city and a lonely old world. Reaching out to new people can be a daunting thing, particularly following the end of a relationship, and how many of us can be said to have tried desperate measures to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right? Is speed-dating or a blind date so different from the ham radio used in this film? So although we may smirk at a seemingly oddball subject matter, this film is in fact a very pertinent and modern look at the search for love and all that that may entail.
