FFF: Love Affair(s)

Drama


 

Vignettes of related romantic entanglements between French couples.

Relationships, marriage, affairs, and varying degrees of emotional involvement are covered in the stories presented in "Love Affair(s)". The movie is non-judgemental about what might be right or incorrect in relation to cheating and betrayal. Eyes wander, devotions stray, and some level of dishonesty is a repeated pattern. Should we care about what the characters don't, which is each other? Fortunately, there are enough plot twists and surprises to maintain engagement, especially as when all is said and done - and much more is said than done - talking weighs down the already generous run-time. Addicted to love.
