Excellent short film
24 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was extremely pleased with this short comedy. The film is incredibly well directed. The dialogue is quite pleasant throughout the story and very well delivered, especially by its leading man/director. The interesting thing about this film is that it is very well executed from all angles. Comedies often fall victim to standard or boring cinematography. "God of Love" however, is very well shot. It easy to see the consideration give to each and every piece of imagery.

I found myself reciting pieces of dialogue for weeks after seeing the film. They also do a great job getting the viewer to join them on the wild ride that is the world they've set up in the film. We don't feel the need to question whats happening (the out of the ordinary aspects), we as viewers just buy in and enjoy the ride.

Its hard to imagine any reasonable way this film could be improved. I strongly recommend it to anyone that enjoys watching movies. A+
