Be Turned Inside Out By Love
3 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

My name is Love is a short film that was part of a collection of short films with a similar theme under the title "Protect me from what I want" Created by David Fardmar, the set up of how the story is told is quite clever. The main character aptly called "Love" is played by Adam Lundgren. On a night out, partying with his friends, but flashbacks show that this is a good time that goes bad, in more ways than one. Unable to find the courage to seek someone himself, Love gets sought out by Marcus, played by Jonas Rimeika.

This short film has twists and turns, the tension between the characters is believable. For example when Love hesitates to tell Marcus his name, and when Marcus finds out his secret, the viewer can't help but feel Love's embarrassment. It raises good topics without taking sides. The ending's quite shocking though, some people who are easily upset may watch scenes through their fingers. This is one of those films in which the ending is left open, but because of the high level of acting, the viewer may care about the characters and could want to know what happens next.
