Critic Reviews for Love Etc.
In an age in which it feels as if seemingly pure intimacy no longer exists, this film thrives on nothing but intimate moments.
It's not that you don't care for these urbanites -- you do, but it's in spite of Andresevic's unengaged hanging-around and general air of slightness.
Throw a party and ask all your friends to share their stories; you'll probably find more surprises, and have a lot more fun.
Breakups and disappearances, loneliness and failing health fit into the film's fabric like beats in a TV drama.
Who needs clichéd Hollywood love stories when you can see the real thing?
Audience Reviews for Love Etc.
Really enjoyed this documentary. Follows the lives of several couples - an elderly couple who have been married 45 years and the wife now has dementia, a divorced single dad of two teenagers who is doing the personal ads, a teenage couple, an Indian couple who are getting married and a gay man who has had surrogate twins after breaking with his boyfriend to have them.
It's not highly dramatic, but it is interesting and most of the people you do care what happens to them. I found the elderly couple the most moving, while the one I liked least was the single dad (but I guess even he acknowledged at the end he needs to grow up).
Good documentary about relationships. Recommended.
