A LOVE AFFAIR OF SORTS
A Love Affair of Sorts is an intimate drama about a boy, a girl, and a camera. David Guy (David Guy Levy, who is also the director) and Enci (Lili Bordán) play a couple who meet in a bookstore, where he catches her in the midst of shoplifting, and she sees him in the midst of furtively filming her with his flip camera. Through the course of that day and evening, they start a tentative relationship, with his omnipresent camera serving as both bridge and barrier to their connection. Things are further complicated with the inclusion of Enci's boyfriend Boris (Iván Kamarás), and David's brutally honest friend Jonathan (Jonathan Beckerman, playing himself, and unaware until the end of the film that it was fictional). Only later do we discover that neither they - nor the film we have been watching - are what they appear to be.
A Love Affair of Sorts is the first full length feature to be shot on a flip camera, set in an era when everything we do is photographed - or could be - as well as a modern twist on romance in the digital age.
Directed by David Guy Levy, U.S.A., 2011, 91 mins.
