Paper Heart (2009) movie review

Looking for Love


You need to respect your clothes.

When Charlyne Yi embarks upon her documentary-style road trip to find the meaning of love, she asks many people for information and advice. The above comment is about as useful as anything else.

As long as the cheque clears.

It's Charlyne and Nicholas's big U.S. road trip, well-received at Sundance, so it probably reflects the young American search for meaning.

A guy and a girl decide to go out and get dinner and see a movie. What would you call that?

Ah. That would be a date, sir.

A story about love that's taking on a life of its own.

Charlyne , if you don't recognise what constitutes dating, it may explain why you're having so much trouble looking for true love.
