Just immerse yourself in Love Is All for its 70 minutes, and it will flow over and around you gloriously.
Like many found-footage assemblages, this is superficially rather charming but lacking in a central thesis. The music, however, is gorgeous.
The tone is playful and lyrical. Longinotto doesn't resort to voiceovers or interviews. Instead, she uses Richard Hawley's wonderfully dreamy music to bring out the underlying themes.
As we watch (and listen), we are swept away on a tide of changing social attitudes to race, gender and sexuality, the singularity of love splintered into kaleidoscopic reflections of desire and devotion.
In truth some of the clips are not that remarkable but what really makes them resonant is the dreamy, seductive music of Richard Hawley who adds shades of melancholy and wistfulness to all these moments of lost loves and young dreams.
Leaves the faint impression of a pleasant dream.
It's all rather nebulous.
It's a charming, appealingly orchestrated illustration of a simple message: times may change but love is eternal.
Sweetly argues that romance remains timeless. Lovely.
There is a wealth of delightfulness here, even if the material can seem a bit random.
