It is inspired by real-life events, and opens with a dramatic wedding feast. It pushes as many buttons as possible with these six tales about love, sex and decadence that has gone wrong: a brother and sister in an incestuous relationship, a married male painter who falls in love with his young male life model, a dance school teacher who is besotted with Queen, one of his students - a rich woman, a love triangle between Moon, a middle-aged woman in a complex love triangle with two young men one of whom is troublesome and she wants to get rid of him and a lesbian couple, one of whom has role-play paranoia. The film celebrates the belief that life is love.Written by
This film tells six love stories involving sixteen individuals that are unconventional and provocative.
I heard not so good things about "Love Actually... Sucks" over the years, so I have delayed watching it. After finally watching it, I find that the bad reviews maybe unjustified and a bit too harsh.
I think the problem is that people watch the film thinking it's a gay film, like Scud's previous three films. Then, the stories are controversial, and people may not be prepared enough for it. In addition, the vast number of characters mean that it can get confusing at times. However, the good thing is that the stories adequately communicate the bizarre nature of love once a person get into it. It is an interesting cult film.
