Documenting the serpentine course of love
18 February 2015 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

'Manhattan Romance' begins with film-maker Danny embarking on a documentary about relationships, which requires him to interview various acquaintances and strangers about their love lives. One of them is a manipulative neo-hippie tease called Theresa, who allows him to give her topless massages while she talks about her open relationship life-style. Her flirting has Danny anticipating detours into amorous territory, but she persistently puts him off with vague excuses. In between these frustrating encounters, he visits his friend Carla to film her discussing her lesbian romance. When he complains to her about his unrequited desires for Theresa, Carla offers only amused eye-rolls and muted sympathy in response.

The film is Tom O'Brien's second feature as writer/producer/director/actor, and his direction and writing gives the excellent cast space and material to create intriguing characters. The story takes some interesting twists and turns as Danny zigzags between his real life connections and his project. The boundary between these two zones becomes blurred, leaving Danny increasingly confused about the true nature of his own relationships, until the narrative eventually unfolds to a satisfying conclusion. When all is said and done, 'Manhattan Romance' delivers some sophisticated entertainment that is both playful and poignant.
