Endless Love – Review

In a world where every second female seems to have access to an excellent beauty parlor adept at metamorphosing any ‘material’ into the most fascinating, just having a pretty good looking cast alone is not sufficient, until the cast gets totally immersed in the character-acting.

Endless Love does just that, it throws in two really good looking characters, a little over age for exhibiting that first crush of a teenager’s all consuming passion, and overlooks to make the characters imbue the role with an emotion-connect.

Endless Love revolves round a young girl, Jade [Gabriella Wilde] from a wealthy well-to-do family, who falls irretrievably in love with a working class boy David [Alex Pettyfer].

This flaming love must be thwarted for its class distinction by a mercilessly scheming father.

Although the mother understands and doesn’t object, it is the father who must get his hitherto confined to loneliness-books-room-company daughter to retrieve from the ashes as it were her dead brother’s career by pursuing medicine and forget her sexual awakening and the intimacy with a boy much beneath her.

The father is prepared to go to any lengths, from weaving tales of deception to espionage.

Whether the girl and boy are love making in a meadow, playing with water in a lake or leaping off a deck, their supposed yearnings fail to tug at the viewers’ heartstrings.

The girl’s attire or absence of it appears more of a cut-and-paste exercise for a photo shoot by an advertising agency for publicity.

No wonder the film fails to rise above the banal and refuses to look anything but an honest portrayal of the sudden awakening of love’s first flush and its all-consuming flame of uncontrolled desire.

PS Any die-hard fans of passion and romance will admire it, simply because it attempts to exhibit a very rare kind of uninhibited-love-at-any-cost kind of romance.

Worth the money.

Rating: 2.5 stars
