UNIVERSALOVE is a global love story. Six episodes in six different places of the world are told in a symbiosis of modern story-telling and popular music. UNIVERSALOVE is an experiment - a global love story. The interwoven storylines are located in Brooklyn, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Belgrade, Marseille and Luxembourg. The laconic narrative style captures moments that set the viewer on a journey around the globe and deep into the emotional worlds of very different characters affiliated with different cultural spheres and languages.

Conceptually, "Universalove" is a lot like "Night on Earth", but with only about one tenth the dialog and not much more coherence. Until about half-way through the movie, you don't know what's going on in any of its six episodes, and you don't really care about the characters either. This is mostly due to the fact that the episodes are broken down into tiny segments, each of which only reveals a fraction of the respective story. My favorite is the one about the Brazilian girl who accidentally gets run over by the soap opera star she adores. To console her, he takes her along to the set of the show, where her illusions are promptly shattered. Chances are there's something for everybody in this movie, but don't expect a lasting impression. - Very nice soundtrack, by Austrian outfit Naked Lunch.
