A non review of THE ONE I LOVE (2014) Fantasia 2014 (revised)
A couple in crisis go a way to a house in the country that their therapist recommended as the perfect getaway place. He says what they will find what they are missing there. They do.
I can't tell you any more than that since the whole film hinges on something that the producers do not want to be revealed. The problem is that if I don't talk about what happens I can't really review the film. I don't see what the big deal is but they seem to think not knowing is really important. Personally I don't think it's anything special. Its nothing we haven't seen on any number of TV anthology shows.
What I can say is that as a whole film this film didn't float my boat. This look at a long term couple in crisis is okay, but I never connected to them or their plight. I never really cared. Blame my lack of a long term relationship or the film just not being that good as to why I didn't relate.
As to how you're going to react to the film I won't guess since when this played at Tribeca, the reaction of the people I talked to were split into the "this is really good" and "what's the big deal" camps. Put me in the latter.
The film plays later today at Fantasia.
