      This was a really good collaborative effort on the behalves of a lot of incredibly talented actors who came together and really brought something new to the table. There is no timeline, and the only plot is truly the 11 different "lovestories" that get told throughout the picture. Each snipet is long enough to get its point across and then switches to a new set of characters in completely different circumstances. More of an art piece than some may like, and a little bit less hollywood than I am sure a lot of romantic movies tend to be. From one who watches a lot of movies but not a lot of romantic movies I would recommend this film. At the very least it warrants a rental to watch a couple of times and I thought enough of it to log on a write a post.
