A few months ago, Intel and W Hotels launch a promotional campaign: Four stories were picked from a scriptwriting competition to be turned into short films. These short films were promoted via film festivals and YouTube and are collectively known as ‘Four Stories’. Here is a response to my favourite of the four. It is called Modern/Love.
I have an obsession with love, travel and adventure. Modern/Love contains it all.
The storyline is developed, easy to understand and woven together very neatly.
The characters are likeable and relatable – being from different cultures* gives the film an inclusive vibe and a global spin.
The cinematography is ethereal, like a golden daydream has been stolen and turned into film. The music only strengthens the fantasy-like atmosphere.
The fact that in just nine minutes the story is full and satisfying suggests that I can liken it to chocolate cake. And anything that can be likened to chocolate cake is good.
*and meeting up in another country!
The 10 minute film can be viewed below. Enjoy!
