Mostly successful through the emotional impact
30 January 2017 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Love at First Sight" is a 12-minute live action short film from 2010 and the star here is lead actor John Hurt, who actually died a couple days ago sadly. It was directed by Michael Davies and written by Julian Unthank and it is a British production in the English language of course. For both of them, it may be their most known work. The plot twist towards the end is probably the main reason to watch this one. With the reference about dementia/Alzheimer's, there is a striking similarity to "The Notebook" and you can add an ounce of "Amour" probably as well, again very fittingly with Riva's recent death too. Makes me a bit sad. Anyway, there are still somewhat uplifting and positive moments about this film, like how great it must be to fall in love every single day, at least for the male protagonist, not for the female too much I guess. The age gap of about a decade is visible, but it does not hurt the overall experience too much really. As a whole, thanks to the plot twist that I should have expected, but did not, it was a good watch and I give it a thumbs-up, even if it still does not deliver as much on the emotional scale as it tried to.
