Trivia

This film is about a young couple in the middle of a relationship crisis. The weary girlfriend seeks some attention from her beau during a supposed date. The game addict boyfriend is too preoccupied by his game. The rest of the people around the seemingly sterile coffee shop are engrossed with their own gadgets in a strange, and at some point, subtly creepy way. People of this generation are already being enslaved by technology that interactions are clearly getting altered towards coldness and superficiality. Relationships are becoming more and more mechanical. People are starting to look like robots.

In this fast-paced era filled with much technological innovation, there are so many things to do, there is too much work to finish, and there is so little time. When could be the last moment a person yielded to the clich√© of stopping for a bit and smelling the flowers? Technology should be in harmony with the way people live their lives. Relationships are vital to humans as social beings. Computers and gadgets should not rule the person. Rather, they should be utilized to make lives better and more meaningful. See more »
