Charlyne Yi embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't fully understand: Love. Michael Cera becomes the object of her affection. Weaving together reality and fantasy, Paper Heart combines elements of documentary and traditional storytelling to get at modern romance.Written by
Okay so the premise of the movie is this, fiction and non-fiction content is mashed into this documentary type of film and it's about a girl Charlyne Yi doubting love. Thus she goes around interviewing people that fell deeply in love and hear there stories, the stories aren't breathtaking or anything but it does have it's moments and sometimes compelling. Michael Cera plays a role in this by playing the guy that falls for Charlyne Yi during a party. And there relationship is not that believable same with Charlyne Yi not believing in love or being loved or loving another. It Charlyne Yi seemed pretty genuine during the relationship but Michael Cera just seemed bored out of his mind even if they sometimes improvised. This film didn't do so well at the box office and I can tell why, the film hardly has any substance, the relationship between Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera is nothing remarkable same as the interviews which could have gone on and on if they wanted to interview more people. The whole point of this movie is to find out if love exist, but and was charming at times though. I guess if you find this movie to be believable you will like it and if not you probably won't, I personally found it a bit mediocre since some of it was believable in my opinion.
