  • 3.8
The story of two people who love all things classically romantic. The first time he sees her, she's riding a vintage bike, in a skirt, with a baguette in the handlebar basket. The first time she sees him, he's driving a vintage car, smoking a pipe, and checking his pocket watch. But their infatuation quickly turns into dramatic competition as they duel to maintain their position as the Most-Romantic.

clever, entertaining, funny story that represents exactly what the short film genre should be

I saw this short at the Napa film fest and LOVED IT. It's just as good the second time through. It's funny, sharp and tightly directed. The french narrator makes me laugh out loud.

An absolute treat, like an irresistible desert on the menu, “The Romantics” is clever, stylish, and zany all rolled into one. It’s just the right length, just the right pace, just the right tone. Do you yourself a favor, set aside about 15 minutes of your day, and watch this wonderful 21st century take on a screwball comedy.

About five minutes too long, imho.

I've seen this twice now and loved it both times. Every aspect of it is well thought out. From the details of the storyline and how it is presented to the way the wardrobe compliments the story as it develops. Highly recommend this.

like a long commercial with a budget werner herzog narrator about a los feliz based steampunk couple

Nope! This just did not work. Clever concept, some interesting technique. Kitschy enough, but it just doesn't all work.
