You know? This was a really good film. Not like - "really good indie film" - but as in simply... a really good film. For a movie with so little cash to produce, it actually came out feeling like a much larger picture. There is just one small problem. It's listed as a comedy, a dark comedy to be exact... yet it realistically wasn't a comedy at all. For myself, it felt like a straight up drama. All the way. Sure. A few amusing instances may have taken place, and I loved those insults thrown, between friends... but honestly... this was a drama in my eyes. I also should point out that I don't mean that in a bad way. Not at all. For me, this film was about loss, grief, friends, family, obsession and overcoming depression. Essentially? This was a film about life itself. The good. The bad. Everything in between. "30-Love" plays off as a sometimes sad, especially during the first half hour, film that really showcases how people deal with loss. Not just with our protagonist, but through the eyes of friends and family. Perhaps one of the more true to life scenes comes right near the end, as we witness how the loss of a daughter, truly plays with the emotions of our anti-heroes Mother in law. You see reader. The easy thing would be to write this film is about a man dealing with his pain, through a sport his deceased wife loved. Tennis. The thing is... that's not all this movie is about. We get to see how friends react. How some try to comfort, and some throw around insults... to help with the obvious grief. We get an inkling, that the way these people are responding, is also because they don't really know quite how to handle it themselves. "30-Love" is not just about one person. It's about a lot of people. A lot of different people... and a baby. It's real because the characters portrayed are far from perfect. These are flawed, hurt people just trying to figure out how to live their lives. Robert Cannon and Ira Heffler, who wrote the film, didn't just offer up a movie about a man and his kid. They offered up a film about life in general. The good and the bad. Technically, for a lower budgeted indie flick, this film looked pretty darn good. I really don't have much to comment on simply because it would feel petty, and nit-pick-ish. I can admit that the acting from everyone was pretty impressive. I always go into a film with low expectations, and in this case, to say I thought all the cast did a great job would be an understatement. Writing individual names would take a "lot" of space, considering this film has a large cast. So let me put it this way. Nobody stood out as awkward or bad, and everyone felt real, flawed and human. You may notice I'm being scarce on plot details. That's because this is a spoiler free review. But generally, there's nothing all that fancy going on here. No plot twists or earth shattering revelations. What "is" here is a simple concept smartly written and directed. The dialog moves the story forward... and it all feels just right. You may also have noticed I haven't used the name of our protagonist. Well reader... I don't think his name was ever given. Ha-ha. Maybe that's the comedic element of the film! Seriously though - this film was downright impressive with it's ability to keep things simple, yet be completely entertaining. Even the overall length of the movie felt right. Do I recommend? Hell yes! I can find no reason not to recommend. My one suggestion? Remove "comedy" from the genre and list it as a drama. In my humble opinion, "30-Love" easily earns a four out of five stars.
