Walking into the movie, I had no idea what to expect. I felt like seeing a movie for no particular reason that night and am quite a fan of Ed Harris. Also, the addition of Robin Williams was a nice addition as he did nothing to harm to movie, only added cheer to it.
The movie had a nice storyline, and a rather unpredictable one. The ending was nothing I would've expected. An expected storyline would have the two getting married and the daughter accepting the father. However, the twisted ending added more emotion to the movie.
I recommend to watch the movie. It is shorter than most movies (90 minutes) and keeps interest throughout the movie. The cast does a convincing job and Ed Harris has the challenge of portraying two different character which he does very well.
It's a movie that also requires a bit of focus as well, which is nice. Rather than watching a pointless romantic movie, "The Face of Love" allows you to insert yourself into the movie, form your own opinion and at the end, walk out possibly with a tear, but ultimately a smile.
