The acting and writing are both pretty bad. Lots of things happen, with amateur over-acting, for no apparent reason. In fact, US daytime soap operas might even be considered an improvement over this. Consider the recent "Nuke" storyline on As the World Turns.
The casting doesn't make a lot of sense. The interviewer is more attractive than the supposed model he interviews. He also appears to be the same age or even younger, despite having graduated and attained some level of experience in the workforce. This is merely the film's biggest flaw.
The music and other sound work is plainly very cheap. You'll laugh when punches start being thrown.
Knowing that the film couldn't stand on its own, it is peppered with short statements on love, almost like the film is supposed to be some mathematical proof, with each scene justified by some dead guy's words. It's supposed to convince you that the film is making some grand contribution to cinema, but it doesn't cover up how bad the film is.
The ending is inexplicable and assumes the worst about one character (who is only in the film to provide this moment) while being very harsh to another.
On the positive side, the sets, which I assume were just places they found, were appealing. That was probably the best part of the film.
