One of the worst movies i ever seen
3 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Loverboy is an Romanian film. It wants to be about a guy (our "loverboy") that is a part of an organised crime group. His role in the group is to pickup pretty girls and then send them to prostitution outside of Romania.

It is the project of an single guy, Cătălin Mitulescu. He is director, writer and producer. And it's not working.

I said "wants to be" before, because that's the main plot. The movie is not about that. The movie is about all kinds of boring stuff, but not that. We get to see people walking, having small talk, sleeping, waking up, having clumsy sex, driving a scooter, cycling, driving a car. The movie is very slow. It could have been an 20 minutes movie and had exactly the same impact. At a point, i was happy that they thrown some "dancing" in the equation, after all that talking and sleeping.

You literally get to see about 6-7 days of the main dude's life (can't remember any names from the movie). And when i see this, i mean, how he goes to sleep and how he wakes up. All feeling very unnecessary.

I think that the point was of character development. But that's not character development. Honestly, i just saw the movie, but i can't remember any single name. Just Luca, i guess it was the main guy, but i'm not sure. But the girl name, the one that we should feel sorry about, nope, can't remember her name.

Camera-work is good, but they messed that up too. There are some things that wanted to be "original", like day-night transitions, but it's not working either, poorly and cheap made. They have been used before, and with much better meaning.

Avoid it. It really does not worth your time. Maybe if you have some trouble sleeping, it can be a good therapeutic movie. Other than that, no.
