'Romance' is a love story by Chuck Palahniuk, the author of 'Fight Club.'
7 December 2012 | by amingoxSee all my reviews

'Romance' is a love story by Chuck Palahniuk, the author of 'Fight Club.' 'Romance' is at times hilarious, sad, shocking and reaffirming. A mixture of voice over narration with gentle background music, the film takes us into the life of a man who encounters a woman he can't believe is interested in him. He's just lost his previous girlfriend and lacks self-confidence but not assurance. When the girl says she's Britney Spears and parties like no-one he's ever met he can't believe his luck. Following their story 'Romance' has laughs and genuine "Palahniuk" moments that make you squeal and shock you out of your seat. The audience reaction was a fantastic way to end this shorts program and 'Romance' ends with a cute message that explains why people in love seem perfect. The film is like nothing seen before and the promotional material in advance came with a warning that would well have been heeded by some, especially during a notorious scene on a bus which had the entire audience laughing and gasping at once. Cinema experiences were made for moments like these.
