Very Original Romance– I Liked a Lot
5 April 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In New York, John Roth (Josh Hamilton) and Lawrence "Moe" Curley (Harold Perrineau) are friends, roommates and partners in a pornographic adult site called Intercon-X, where the fantasies of costumers may be satisfied, being necessary only a computer and a credit card. John is very lonely and has difficulties to deal with real people, and Moe is a "walking penis", only interested in having sex with women. John peeps Angel (Liz Owens) and the delicious Jordan Nash (Vanessa Ferlito), and one day he makes contact with Jordan and they date. Meanwhile, the depressed owner of a thematic bar, Moira Ingalls (Isabell Gillies), meets Moe and she falls in love for him, stops using pills and leaves her suicidal chartroom, keeping only touch with the twenty years old gay virtual friend Ed Simone (Eric Millegan), who is also lonely and likes Al Fleming (John Fleck) from Intercon-X. The reaction of each person outside virtual world meeting the other one is very different, but in the end, there is a message of hope.

"On_Line" is a very original and updated romance and I liked a lot. The creative screenplay is about a very modern theme that is explored in "Thomas est Amoureux" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0262826/usercomments-13) in a different approach, taking place in a near future. But in "On-Line", the story about lonely people that have difficulties to establish a relationship with real people is much more believable. In the present days, it is amazing the quantity of personal information transmitted through Internet and the number of persons we only know virtually. In IMDb, for example, I have contact with many persons, few of them are my friends in real world, but most of them I know just through the site and probably I will never have the chance to meet them. But IMDb is a site about movies, and not problematic as Intercon-X or the suicidal chat room. The cast is great and is difficult to highlight one individual performance, although I liked a lot the acting of Isabell Gillies in the role of the sweet and hurt Moira Ingalls; the direction is excellent, with a great work of edition. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Vida On_Line" ("The On_Line Life")
