A film where anything can happen - the hero and the heroine changes their faces, age, look, names, and so on. The only same thing: the LOVE between man and woman... in an archetypical love story cut from 500 classics from all around the worldWritten by
Saw this tonight at the Sydney Cockatoo Island Film Festival.
An interesting work. Really tests the limits by telling a story without a main actor, without a script, without a location. Achieves a certain level of film making bordering on genius or dilettante. What has been done here deserves notice by anyone who has interest in any aspect of film and creative process.
Its a fantastic experience and very much worth watching. Personally I found it interesting that the melange of actors/actresses/scenes spanning almost every conceivable situation, did not include such luminaries as, for example; Michael Caine and Christopher Walken, while still including multiple shots of actors such as Ethan Hawke.
Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed the premier viewing and relished every minute of what was produced by the writer and director in this instance.
