Storyline

In contemporary L.A., two twenty-somethings 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.

Awful people doing selfish things
18 February 2020 | by jellopukeSee all my reviews

There are many montages in this movie to move things along, all with soothing piano music that therefore must be touching and sweet, but in actuality, these characters are so one dimensional, selfish, and unlikeable that you end up not caring if they end up together. I get that it's trying to be a look at millennial dating, but there's literally nothing beyond the "sex" level here. No interesting conversations, no intelligent dialogue, nothing beyond just sex. I would say it was a let down, but I had no expectations, so it was ok-ish.
