I did watch the movie somehow late, just now on TV. I was however gladly surprised: Bulgarian movies are usually in the extremity of being so pretentious in being art or too populist in being consumer oriented. Love.net for me is just on the balance of being a genuinely good movie and good entertainment for those interested in having good value for their tickets. Let me try to explain why this worked for me.
1. The story told in the movies is real. This could happen anywhere in the world with people speaking Bulgarian, English, Spanish or Chinese for all it matters. The moral choices the protagonists have to make to make sense and could relate to anybody in our internet world. This is why the movie should not be seen as Bulgarian as staging and the showcases lifestyle is not the lifestyle most Bulgarians enjoy, but this is how anybody in the world that has similar problem would live, and I do dare to say Bulgaria is right on the money there.
2. The movie is good fun: perhaps too much nudity in some scenes, but again this is art: the scenes are from a very successful staging of Casanova at the national theater.
Yes, I do agree there are some flat lines, but give some proper English translation and all will be fine.
