Storyline

About men, about women, about essential reality of their relationships in bright and good looking Moscow. The whole film is the lecture about love like it is a child of chemistry and psychology. During this lecture we are watching through five or even more love stories about couples trying to pretend that relationship they have is special and outstanding. But the most valuable words said already at the beginning by the woman from the first couple: 'Let's go home. Will be living'. And these words mean the end of love. And the beginning the same time.

A mainstream movie with weak performances
15 January 2016 | by Denis MysenkoSee all my reviews

My expectations were quite high because of director's previous success with 'Rusalka', but unfortunately 'Pro lyubov' didn't deliver.

There is no story whatsoever, the movie is just a chaotic sequence of non-related episodes. That works sometimes ('4 rooms', 'Paris, je t'aime') but mini-stories have to be exceptional and have to feel complete.

Many of the performances are plastic and fake. It feels that actors are simply reading their scripts rather than submerging into their characters.

In one of the stories, patriotic propaganda is a little bit over the roof, which is probably fine for mainstream movies, but not for art-house directors like Melikyan.

In sum, it's an okay popcorn movie for one view, but it's definitely not worth the hype.
