Storyline

In New York, the drug-addicted Syd is consumed by drink and drugs - missing his girlfriend London, who broke up with him six months ago after a two-year relationship. When Syd finds that London's friends throw a going away party for her, he decides to go to the party without an invitation. But first he meets the banker and drug-dealer, Bateman, in a bar to buy coke, and he invites his new acquaintance to go to the party with him. While locked in the bathroom with Bateman snorting coke and drinking booze, Syd recalls moments of his relationship with London, inclusive that he had never said "I love you" to his girlfriend despite her countless requests. Bateman also "open his heart" under the influence of cocaine and tells his impotence problem to Syd; in the end he convinces Syd to talk to London. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Syd: Ever since you and I broke up, I've wanted to have a normal conversation, just a normal conversation with you. And I just feel like everytime I see you, it just gets like so wierd and chaotic and scrambles, and I can't organize my thoughts and I can't even express the most basic words I want to say to you.
London: I know. Me too.
Syd: Whatever we had when we were together, when we were in love that feeling of just being able to lie in bed for days and not give a fuck about the outside world... is gone. And ...

Smart, compact, interesting
1 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

You have seen movies like this one. They are based on conversation, with a low budget and a few sets. Their strongest part is the idea and the feelings of the characters. Basically it is a filmed play.

However, unlike many of the movies in this category, this film is a great one. It's like the story of my breakup, but with a happy ending. Do they (a girl and a boy, always they are) remain together happily every after? It doesn't really matter. The ending is just as smart as the rest of the film.

All the characters play well. Chris Evans is both scary and pitiful in the role of this insanely in love guy, who can't control his jealousy, even if he is a nice non violent guy. Jessica Biel looks hot as always, but even if her character gives the name of the movie, she is not the main character and she really has a small part. Jason Statham has hair in this film! If anything else, this is something to see :) And he plays beautifully. Maybe he is tired of silly action movies. Joy Bryant plays a small part, just looking gorgeous and being a good friend.

Bottom line: a 25-35 demographic movie. I can't imagine kids of under 25 really getting it, although they most desperately should. It's a romantic film of sorts, but a male romanticism. I love these films, as they are so rare these days.
