lo-fi and lovely

HARMONY AND ME plays like a scrapbook of found scenes; all somewhat centering around our main character trying to get over a breakup. Everything in the film is hilarious, because it's totally true. My friends and I got some pie after the screening, we were talking about how almost worse than going through an actual breakup is when all your friends tell you how you're supposed to get over the breakup. As we were eating, we kept recalling our favorite parts and lines - it's intensely quotable ("She's breaking my heart, she's like a bear with my heart in it's claws") but also so fast paced - most scenes are not even a minute long.

I saw it with quite possibly the best audience - we were all totally laughing the entire time. Come to think of it, many films like this; there's always a part near the end where it gets sentimental or real - this film goes SO FAR the other way. It's one of the funniest and most ridiculous endings I've seen in a feature film. They really went for it - and the crowd I saw it with at least, we were totally into it. And the film is never slow - I doubt it was longer than 90 minutes.

But it's funny; while the film is linear - it really does have this scrapbook feeling to it. In a weird way, the film has the feeling of "Harold and Maude" and "Nashville" but seen thru the lens of more modern indies like "Mutual Appreciation" (but this is just way funnier than that one).

I'm always looking thru my netflix cue to find new indie comedies to rent - I really wish there were more films like this one. Totally up my alley. Totally recommend it.
