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.

A particularly poignant examination of love which magically ushers the audience right into the middle of the romantic relationships of a variety of native New Yorkers.

Each of the six protagonists in Love Etc. are sweet and hopeful in a genuinely human way that fictional films simply cannot touch.

Throw a party and ask all your friends to share their stories; you'll probably find more surprises, and have a lot more fun.

[A]voids cloying clichés through the bittersweet lessons each learns [to show] "I love you" can be richer, more nuanced, and more expansive than Hollywood fairy tales.

How do you find love in a teeming city of 18 million souls? This lightweight, likable documentary attempts to answer that question.

Breakups and disappearances, loneliness and failing health fit into the film's fabric like beats in a TV drama.

TV reality show-style doc offers superficial portraits of amour.

Love Etc.'s cross-section of New Yorkers simply isn't as captivating as its cross-section of New York, particularly the Queens and Brooklyn neighborhoods that rarely grace the screen.

It's about as deep as an afternoon of people-watching.

That relationships are, like, hard isn't exactly a revelatory thesis, and most of Andresevic's subjects seem too conscious of the camera -- and prone to post-reality TV empty confession -- to reveal anything beyond the obvious.

[VIDEO] Jill Andresevic's hokey-but-enjoyable brief documentary study of romantic relationships is set in New York's five boroughs.

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

A cautiously optimistic doc that explores the relationships of eight New Yorkers.

Andresevic includes photogenic clips of the vibrant and diverse areas of New York City, giving a strong sense of the settings of the different love stories spread around the city.
