Very sweet
18 December 2015 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a womanising man who is diagnosed with gonorrhoea. He reconnects with the women he slept with to ask them to go for a test. He discovers that there is much more to the women than that meets his eyes.

"That Burning Feeling" is such a sweet romantic comedy! Adam's journey to find all the women and then getting to know them is quite a beautiful one. He also bonds with his gay neighbour, and find the woman of his dreams in the meantime. It is so sweet, positive and simply very pleasant to watch. It is quite a surprise because this lesser known romantic comedy is very well made. I enjoyed "That Burning Feeling" a lot.
