This Movie Is Broken
Director: Bruce McDonald
Review By: Mut Asheru
Can’t really say that I was crazy about this one but I definitely have to give the creators props for creativity. Everything is centered around a Broken Social Scene concert. The director weaves a love story in, out and throughout actual concert footage.
The is the story of a pair of unconventional lovers Bruno (Greg Calderone) & Caroline (Georgina Reilly). Childhood friends, their relationship changes after they wake up next to each other one day after a party. Shortly after they run into a friend that announces the concert. Do they end up together? Can’t tell you but I do know that the characters are very realistic. I had no trouble believing them and I got introduced to a new band at the same time.
I know you’re wondering just what about the film didn’t tickle my fancy. Well, I’ll tell you. I don’t think there was enough of story in there. The story that does show up on scene is too brief for me to get into. Not a bad story it just needed a little more development.
