a short film by Eoin Maher.

2017 | 8 mins | UK.

a contemplative piece on one man's intense longing to find true love.

Dave says:

Just like the Queers outstanding series of Mark Gatiss produced BBC mini-dramas that marked the highlight of the 2017 Gay Britannia season, this reflective short film from writer and director Eoin Maher is another direct-to-camera piece. In this instance, it tells the story of one man's intense longing to find true love.

Beginning with a brief scene of a man (Aaron Lee) leaving the home of his latest one-night stand, he turns to the camera and proceeds to share his innermost thoughts on life and love. The result is essentially a one-man play with Lee conveying the emotions of an individual whose deep desires and insecurities are exposed for all to see. Tired of repeated one-night stands that seemingly go nowhere, this is a man who begins to question not what's wrong with every man he meets, but rather what's wrong with him?

The result is a contemplative piece that raises more questions, than it answers and in particular on how to form a lasting relationship in the age of dating apps, online hookups and nights of passion - sans amour.
