Film review: Love Tomorrow packs very little emotional punch
Christopher Payne, 79mins Starring: Cindy Jourdain, Arionel Vargas, Max Brown (PG)
Unlike the lurid Black Swan, this is a ballet-themed film made by insiders. Its lead actress, Cindy Jourdain, who plays former ballet dancer Eva, is an ex-ballerina. Arionel Vargas, who plays Oriel, the Cuban man who accosts her after seeing her on the London Tube, is likewise a trained dancer.
This is a slow-burning, character-based drama that, in its better moments, rekindles memories of Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colours films.
Payne uses his London locations, ranging from Sadler's Wells to Camden Town and Victoria Park, atmospherically enough and manages to create a sense of mystery about his protagonists (both with problems in their private lives).
The film, though, is so low key in style and execution that it packs very little emotional punch.
