Movie Info

Long before organizing Troma Pictures with Michael Herz, filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman ground out the 16-millimeter comedy Battle of Love's Return. In contrast to the later raunchy output of Troma, this highly personal piece is an innocuous tale of a born schlemiel. Kaufman himself plays the leading role of a New Jersey naif who finds himself a fish out of water in bad old New York. Lynn Lowry plays Kaufman's "Dream Girl," while the nasty Mr. Crumb is portrayed by Kaufman's father Stanley Kaufman. Battle of Love's Return can mercifully be described as amateurish, but its heart is in the right place.

Audience Reviews for The Battle of Love's Return

  • Aug 28, 2009
    Lloyd Kaufman (the creator of "Toxie" and Troma) wrote, directed, produced, wrote the music, edited and stars in this film about a poor guy who is troubled by life and love in the big city. The film is very different from most in that it incorporates both fictional and (could be fictional) interview footage into the narative. I walked away with the feeling that the city (New York) is a cold place and so is the modern world! But that's just one man's opinion!
