Storyline

A corpse lies on a living room floor. Our leads, Alex and Sarah are desperately trying to figure out what to do with the deceased Punjabi man Roger. Sarah is in panic, Alex tries to calm her down. Meanwhile, they start debating whether Roger is dead and whether Punjab is part of India or Pakistan. Then, suddenly, the body disappears. We flashback to Alex and Sarah's childhoods, they've been friends since kindergarten, and through high school. Both are smart, adventurous and hilarious. As kids, they have both been traumatized: Alex by the fact that the only picture of him allowed in the house was his embryonic ultrasound image; Sarah by the fact that her parents were swingers. As teens, Alex and Sarah are pranksters in school (Sarah hands in her assignments in Sanskrit) and outside (importuning a parking officer who is ticketing a car that does not even belong to them). The two lose touch with each other after high school. Sarah travels to the orient, while Alex becomes a stand up ... Written by Alberto Diamante

Great fun!

This film is a wonderful example of what a dedicated group of film-makers can do with very little funding! The design elements are simple yet effective. The performances are very real and honest. The writing is especially good, check out the Sex Therapist's Office, it's very funny. Interwoven story lines blurring fact and fiction, keep the audience on it's toes! There are a few very topical issues that arise within the film, including the political unrest currently confronting Pakistan. Very forward thinking for such a small film! Liam Card (Alex) has the stuff, he's really a very natural performer. Love the Step-Father (Mike Lummis) and Young Sarah (Julia Todaro), both performances are fantastic! The film has a nice flow, keeps moving, never feels static. Typically small budget films are boring at times but Love…And Other Reasons to Panic has lots going on. A few Panics but mostly Love. Hats off to all involved.
