LOVE IS LIKE LIFE (2011) – Review

Love is like life, Poppy De Villeneuve

LOVE IS LIKE LIFE, BUT LONGER (2011) is a short film directed by Poppy de Villeneuve, written by Simon Van Booy, and stars Jeremy Strong, Maya Kazam, and Joan Copeland. The film is about just how a fleeting coincidence connects life and love on the way to the elevator.

What is it about love that ignites the fire deep within us? Stirs us from an uneasy rest, and when life is busy moving from one moment to the next, it is love that whispers to us in those quiet moments, challenging all thoughts and beliefs. Love, a bringer of renewed dreams, hopes, and–quite possibly–faith.

Director Poppy de Villeneuve directs Love is Like Life, but Longer beautifully, capturing love as the unspoken theme in this narrated soliloquy of words. Watch as love undermines and tempts faith with just a simple touch. Watch as the lives of two lonely people move from an existence in darkness and uncertainty to a new life of love and light.

Recommended.
