Young, old, gay, straight - everyone has experienced love - and the joy and frustration that come with it. From teen romance to a decades-long marriage; newlyweds to a recent divorcee, and even a bachelor so frustrated in his search that he chooses to have children without a partner, Love Etc. documents the intimate journeys

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.

While Love Etc. shows restraint in its broad look at the universal desire for companionship, it remains a frustratingly thin affair.

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.
