Storyline

In contemporary L.A., two horny (but also sad) twentysomethings millennials, Martin, a pharmacist and Gabi, a physiotherapist spend their weekends "swiping" on a dating app. The options are endless, but it's less about connection and more about hooking-up. But when they meet, they find themselves talking into the early hours. Connecting. It's exciting. It's new. They mysteriously regain their feelings and fall in love. Exhilarated by each other, they rush into a relationship. They go out on dates. They move in together. They skip work to make love - But soon the relationship becomes boring. And they decide to try an open relationship. Written by lament

For a movie that has relationship written all over it in the "modern era" (that is with cell phones and apps to find "love"), this really could be called a modern day love story. So while you could compare it to "Love", this is not as explicit as that (though you will have some nudiy in this too), but gets more involved into the characters.

One set up shows closeness physically, but characters being as far apart as possible. It could have gone wrong, too cliche, but the symbolism of it really hits home (no pun intended). The movie generally has quite a few themes, with "newness" being one of them. The pleasure one has to enjoy that. But even with one character living in the past, the connection to "new" is still there. The other character may not want anything newer, but that plays into the theme too. Especially when things get mixed up.

The movie tries to analyze a bit and give us a look into the psyche, but it not a psychological study. You can read a couple of things into it, but it does try to stay in the drama department and the general flow of the movie. Good themes, good acting and a good script about a ... new sort of love story
