A gay man and a lesbian enter into a marriage of convenience. A little over a year later, the arrangement is crumbling before our very eyes: her college friend comes back for a visit, and he hires a new landscape artist out of the back of the local gay paper. Trouble is, neither one of them is a person I would ever want to know, even as a casual acquaintance. Two relentlessly unsympathetic, whiny, obnoxious people just don't make for a compelling character study, and neither of the central characters acquires any depth or understanding in 72 minutes. Certainly not the worst film in the festival, but well worth skipping if you have the chance.
Love Life, dir. Damion Dietz, 2006 USA, 72 min.
