Love + Hate

UK 2005

Details imdb

Seen 21 May 2012

Love blossoms despite the odds

IMDB 6.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 70% liked it
Race and religion seem like barriers to love but here we have two couples surmounting them. Unfortunately prejudices are still prevalent and traditions hold sway. It is difficult to follow one's heart and desire with all those baggage but one must decide. The film gets a 7.0/10 from me for the ensemble acting and competent script.

My impressions:

We never know
Who we fall for
In love and hate

Maybe we are quite certain
Who we hate

But did we make a conscious
To fall in love with a person
Or does it just
Out of the blue

Once our minds are set
Then comes the family and our upbringing
The others in our lives

We may say it is our own lives
To live
But others in our lives
Where are they in the scheme of things
