Aro Favourite Conversations with Other Women


USA / UK 2005, 84 minutes
Dir. Hans Canosa
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Romance, Independent


Aroview: An innovative, bittersweet romantic two-hander that uses split screen for its entire running time to explore the contrasting points-of-view of two mutually-attracted guests at an out-of-town wedding.

While disorienting at first, the viewer's eye adjusts to the split screen effect and it pays off as a highly original and versatile storytelling technique that makes the most of both its form and content. The script, too, gives Eckhart and Bonham-Carter (both never better) a solid foundation on which to build characters that genuinely live and breathe, and together they strike up a palpable on-screen chemistry.

Note: The international release of this film has been re-edited as a conventional 'single-screen' version(!). While we think this is blatant violation of the film-maker's integrity, it is a testament to the film's strength that it can still be enjoyed for the performances and the script.
