not so much a comedy as a satire
25 February 2014 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I suppose satire is a form of comedy, but if you're expecting laugh out loud moments, you're watching the wrong movie.

Syrup is a well written, somewhat edgy drama/satire/romance based in the cut-throat world of marketing. The characters are lost, afloat in a world where image is everything, where their very selves are naught more than a reflection of marketing thrust upon them by multinational corporations.

The crux of the irony in Syrup is even though the characters work in marketing, and play with the lives of others, their own lives are being driven by the same market forces.

This makes for a poignant, thought provoking and oftentimes tragic movie. The acting is fairly solid, with the leads putting in convincing performances. It does seem (to someone to hasn't read the book) that some themes are left abridged and not fully explored but this doesn't detract from the fact this movie is a good watch.
