"Unrequited Love" tells about a young man (Max Irons) who wants to win back the love of his life by writing poems in a beautiful yet lonely place, by a tree. However, he's not much of a good writer, barely can feel the reality of his words, and through the whole time after writing one bad sentence after another, he keeps messing up with the nature by throwing scribbled papers on the ground. And nature gets even at him...
The visual is good, Max Irons' presence is quite interesting, the poetry though silly is amusing to hear it but the story's concept is utterly confusing, obscure and so little in such a hurried time that there's not even time for the audience to come up with a great thought. Harmless fun, quite watchable. The only problem was the delivery of the film's message (oh yeah, the tree has spoken but who understood what was said? then credits roll). A good short film. 6/10
