Storyline

Attractive, educated and successful, Eloïse (Elsa Zylberstein) has it all, except for a long-term, stable romantic relationship. Now in her mid-30s, she can hear a certain clock ticking loudly. So she enrolls in a speed dating program. Seven men, seven women, pre-screened for compatibility. You have seven minutes to take the measure of each other before you both move on to other candidates. The Feelings Factory is a remarkable look at one variation of modern romance, a streamlined notion of courtship that gets past all the awkward preliminaries that seem to capsize such encounters. Zylberstein is perfect in the role: her self assurance and intelligence not to mention her sense of humor can always be felt, even as she reveals bits of her needs and vulnerabilities to potential suitors

For a movie that's called Feelings Factory (international/english title), there's not many feelings floating around here. Of course this is meant to be like that, to show us, that right now there is not much love floating around.

And even if we believe in the "concept" of love, we try to find it the wrong ways. Like at love shows, on the internet etc. (not actually anything that is in the movie, those are just examples). Well the good news is, that it achieves it's goal. The bad news? It achieves it's goals! While the characters are portrayed great by the actors, you're not really into them. You're not really feeling them or care for them, that much. Which leaves you with a bad taste at the end of the movie or at least a confused feeling ...
