Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Okay, although it seems real, this film is actually fictional. Yi and Cera ARE actually a couple in real life, and the interviews with couples in the film are real, but other than that, everyone is acting from a script(written by Yi and the director). Although Im still not sure if the 'friends' in the film are actually real friends of Yi and Cera, or actors.

I guess it's a romantic comedy, but it's a little light on the romance, and also on the comedy to be honest. It's diverting enough, and I liked how different it was - from the endearing ineptitude of Yi, to the childlike puppet-show interludes. There's a lot of creativity here, and alot of optimism, which is infectious. However, it's also disjointed, and not exactly 'crafted' filmmaking - it doesn't really have an ending, so there is another puppet-show scene.

I also still can't decide if I liked the whole pretence of it. Yi plays herself, but her 'friend/director' is played by an actor. They are very convincing as friends, but I don't really see the point - it's as little confusing for the viewer, as you cant really trust the documentary parts, or the story parts.

I think this is worth watching, as it does keep you fairly entertained by it's sheer quirkiness, but I think it could've better. I'm sure their future projects will be.
