Fantastic head trip of a romantic comedy, brings Chuck P's writing to life.
16 March 2013 | by renee-pickupSee all my reviews

I saw ROMANCE a couple weekends ago at the Cinequest film festival, and wasn't sure what to expect. I had heard about the short story it was based on, but had not read it. I am a fan of Chuck Palahniuk, though, and it's always fun to see a film at a festival.

The quick synopsis is that our hero has just lost his love, and doesn't dare fall for anyone again. But an incredibly hot, incredibly out of his league girl comes onto him and they fall into a crazy kind of love. The only problem is... there is something sort of "off" about her. I won't get into too much more for fear of spoilers--every moment in the movie is worth seeing for yourself.

This film echoes Palahniuk's writing flawlessly, and is at once hilarious, touching, and full of questions for the viewer to ask themselves once it's done. What is "romance"? What is "love"? It digs under the surface of what society tells us about what love is/should be, while still being incredibly funny.

I can't recommend this film enough.
