Hey kids, have you heard about the Internet? How about online dating? Crazy right? Love.Net explores the seedy cyberspaces of Bulgaria, where men are extremely sexist, and kids are North American savvy. Filmed in slick Hollywood fashion, the bevy of plots in this copulation compilation delves into email relationships from varying positions. Clever technical segues give this a polished sheen seldom seen from the Bulgarian film industry. The acting is wildly uneven, which in a strange way, compliments the diversity of the story threads within. There’s no inkling of a Balkan republic facing financial crisis in this hopped up escapist tale. Recommended if you’ve ever wondered how Bulgaria’s one percent behaves.


Music nerds will spot old Uriah Heepsters John Lawton and Mick Box trying valiantly in vain to portray old British prog rockers.
