“If particular films each have an equivalent genre in literature, Alma Har’el's documentary LoveTrue comes closest to poetry.” – The Playlist
Does true love really exist? That's the question at the heart of the sophomore effort from Bombay Beach director Alma Har’el. Tracking three accounts of amorous affairs, with re-enactments of past memories and potential futures by non-actors and the subjects themselves, this surreal, deeply insightful, humanist film attempts to lay bare relationship fantasies.
Exotic dancer Blake tries to connect with the physically fragile Joel. For teenage surfer Coconut Willie, his one lasting bond is with his young son. And busker Victory endeavours to come to terms with her parents' breakup. Their stories deconstruct, deliberate upon and demystify that crazy little thing called love.
