Love, Etc. is one of those documentaries that you think you’ve seen before because it’s five stories in one city about love and some of the graphics are pretty cute. I know, you’re thinking, “uh oh,” but hang in there. This is actually a really good documentary that’s really not a documentary at all. I mean, it’s a documentary in that it’s real people as opposed to actors and it’s a documentary in that it has a point of view, but it really is kind of a look at love. The film has five couples: one couple that has been married for 48 years and the wife has dementia, which is sort of the Love Everlasting story. Then we have a couple who fall in love for the first time with each other and they’re just 18-year-olds at prep school and he’s from Brazil. Then there’s a guy who’s divorced with two kids and looking for love in all the wrong places. Then there’s the starting a family story, but it turns out the guy is gay, which is really very sweetly done. And finally, there’s a couple from India who are planning their wedding and we see their engagement and the family and the wedding and sort of suffer through them with it. I mean, it’s a very well edited documentary and you care about the people enormously and there’s some brilliant editing that goes from a scene of one to the scene of another without it being too obvious or too precious. I really liked this a lot in terms of things to think about and not being a Hollywood version of love, so I’ll give it four and a half stars.
