This film is about a couple who resorts to making homemade online porn to pay off mounting debt.
"Buffering" is a surprisingly well made film. If it has a low budget, it certainly does not show. Maybe the plentiful product placements (which does not feel contrived by the way) helped contributing to production costs. I really like the portrayal of the couple, they are realistic and convincing! They have to make ends meet, just like any ordinary real life couples. How their relationship changes as the pressure increases is also well depicted. Though the plot has a lot of clichés, especially involving the female best friend, I still find "Buffering" very enjoyable.
