Feast of Love Reviews
While many of the movie's scenes are set at Portland State University, the nearby campuses of Western Seminary and Reed College were the actual locations of filming. Locations at Reed include the Blue Bridge, the front lawn and Eliot Circle. Scenes in the Jitters Cafe, owned by Kinnear's character, were filmed at the Fresh Pot at the corner of N Mississippi Avenue and Shaver streets in Portland.

It was easy to sit through it and it had a great soundtrack but it sometimes felt like it jumped too fast between the scenes that it took a while to figure out which couple the next scene was about. And there were things that the movie decided not to tell you and it could sometimes be difficult to fill in the gaps.
But other than that I enjoyed it, it was a well-thought movie about love and all of its obstacles and consequences. Despite everything that happens it felt credible and realistic but I can imagine that it must be difficult to find an ending for a movie like this, and I'm not quite sure if this ending was right.
As for the performances, I would say the cast performed well. The problem with this particular screenplay is that because it's attempting to provide a look at an array of characters rather than focusing on just a handful, you never feel that you really know what each character is about, and so when Blair's character leaves her husband for another woman (I'm not giving anything huge away there), you are unsure as to where this has come from or why, and as an audience you are meant to just accept it, along with other events that are not fully explained.
I did enjoy watching this movie, it has some truly touching moments and of course some tragic moments, but nothing overly uplifting to lift the audience out of these somewhat depressing scenes, so for me the film explored some valid and often realistic downsides to relationships, but then left you there. It would have been nice to have some more uplifting scenes, but then again this may not have been the director's vision, so who knows.
For me, a movie with some fine ideas and moments, but a film that left me unsatisfied and wanting more.
