Love is a word that almost all of us mention on a couple of times per month. Being frank, fair and fearless with those who adore the “religion of love”, most of the romantic moments in our lives are somewhat shallow and short sighted. Even drug addicts have the same script of love affair as I noted recently.They all follow the same concept that existed a century ago and maybe make “fools of love” smile, but they don’t leave a lasting legacy and for those I have across are living a bitter life full of regrets. Enter an Australian friend who has just gotten engaged with a beau aged 23 years old Tasmanian beau.With his newest fling partner, “It’s Complicated,” and proved that he is one of the better romantic creators, as the well educated lady has already shown in their relationship and reminded me of high school days when we used to say that “what women want,” “kisses and hugs” and “something’s you’ve got to give.” My blud intimated to me that “it’s Complicated” is and despite how they try to wonderfully portray it, the lady has just moved out of the house where they have been living together since their intimacy began three years ago.Left alone, he longs for affection that he gets in a controlled way.Little did he expect that affection would arrive in the form of her ex-girlfriend though he still has the present one as first choice. Have never understood what magic or science engaged men use to handle multiple partners. A night in Sydney with too many drinks is the beginning of their rekindled love, only this time Janet becomes “the other woman,” the mistress of the man who cheated on and left her 5 years ago for somebody much younger than herself. Reluctant at first, and torn between feelings of passion and guilt,Janet herself get involved in an affair with Jim, also satisfied that he isn’t happier in his new marriage than he was in theirs.
As if this scenario weren’t tangled enough, Sam throws in Janet’s architect Eddy, still suffering from his own divorce, who falls in love with Janet. The love triangle is complete. The interaction between Emily and Boaz, their quest to see if the love they once felt for each other still exists, and the comical situations they find themselves in as they try to keep their affair hidden are the strongest elements of their friends and family. Sam is the undisputed star of this love triangle. He can giggle like a teenager when sharing dirty jokes with her girlfriends, and blush adorably when asking her ex-girlfriend to turn around after making love “because the last time you have seen me standing up naked, I was in my 30s.” Boaz, too, does a good job by constantly trying to sweet-talk his ex-girlfriend into giving him another chance. In my understanding, Boaz is cast as the villain, the bad guy who cheated and left his wife and family, but is a likeable chap. The Australian blud live in beautiful houses with ridiculously large kitchens, swimming pools and perfect gardens in the outskirts of Sydney. He revealed to me he never worry about money, and both are successful in their jobs.This is too close to reality, but by presenting these circumstances as a given,they can fully concentrate on their inner lives, their problems and the tangled web they weave when they fall in love.By doing what he does best, the Sydneysider delivers yet again a pleasant love triangle experience, a funny, romantic and bittersweet love story that will put to shame those Ashely Madison hacking attack victims.
