Movie Info

The trials of Australian film-school students during a single day provide the basis for this charming, nonjudgmental, and at times hilarious comic slice of student life. Although the students' troubles seem insurmountable, all of them are neatly resolved during the house-warming party that concludes the film.

Audience Reviews for Love and Other Catastrophes

A Fun peek into College Life with a Few Twists.Australian Film School Students,Friends & Lovers, deal with what they see as "Crises" in one day. Brilliant Dialog, superb acting by Frances O'Connor(Who I love in Brit Films),Radha Mitchell Matt Day, & Alice Garner & a well conceived Script make this more enjoyable than most College Themed Movies.I especially loved the never ending Thesis on Doris Day Films as a concept.Bravo

I guess this film would be more interesting or meaningful if watching it in 1990s or for those studying in Melbourne.


It was good.
