Storyline

Life as it happens - the film's tag line - says it all. This slice-of-life film is a meditation on love and happiness. Schola and Gabe are two young artists (she an actress and he a filmmaker) struggling to make some inroads into their respective careers, while working to bring an end to the loneliness they feel as single adults in a big city. Schola and Gabe eventually cross paths on a subway train, and soon begin an instructive, romantic relationship. The film takes us through various stages of the relationship and is divided into four appropriately-labeled chapters, indicating the four stages of a relationship - from the first meeting, to the early novelty phase, continuing on as the novelty wears off and potential problems set in, and ending with a matter of choice of whether to continue on or to separate.

Solid low budget flick with promise
7 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a film that was made for less than $5000, it's actually quite good. It's much better than a lot of the crap Hollywood puts out annually. The characters are believable. You actually forget that you're watching a movie. It feels that real. It's definitely uncompromising, raw and honest. It's an honest take on the idea of the romantic monogamous relationship. The production values aren't as sharp as a film with a much higher budget. But there's more than enough substance there to more than make up for that. A good first film from the filmmaker. Someone to look out for in the near future. I would love to see what the filmmaker could do with a lot more money. Someone give this guy some money will ya?
