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.

love is what happens when you're busy making other plans
24 April 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I interpreted Anna Melikyan's "Pro lyubov'" ("About Love" in English) as a look at the question of how we define love in the 21st century. For example, in the first segment, anime fans Lena and Igor are in a relationship but have never seen each other out of costume. When they finally see each other out of costume it's awkward. Meanwhile, other characters spend all day with their gadgets or video games (as if to say that they love artificial things more than they love people). There's even a man whose goal is ridding Moscow of anything that he deems ugly (including a monument to Peter the Great).

Like "The Stroll" and "Elena", "About Love" uses its plot to pose the question of where Russia is going in the 21st century. Whether its the office manager who has to satisfy her boss's desires, or the lecturer's discovery about her former lover, something surprising happens with each character. We see the relationships of the people attending the lecture - and how they cross paths with each other - but there remains the issue of how this will get affected by outside events (that's my interpretation anyway). The movie has some impressive camera work and editing to move the story along. I recommend it.
