Since the birth of movies, New York has long been cinema's dream cityits teeming
populace of one-of-a-kind characters, its stone-and-glass skyscrapers rocketing towards the
heavens, its subterranean cultures and its rooftop love affairs all making for the perfect backdrop
to all manner of action, comedy, drama and poetry. The city has been immortalized on screen in
hundreds of different ways in thousands of movies. But now comes a fresh, diverse and
unabashedly romantic window into the city, this time seen entirely through the eyes of lovelove
in all its varieties, from first love, tough love and momentary love to love remembered, love
denied, love yearned for and love that lasts foreverfrom a collaboration of young, impassioned
filmmakers from around the world.

LOVE YOU invites the audience into the intimate lives of New Yorkers as they grapple with,

precious stone. Meanwhile, in Chinatown, a desperate artist pursues a reluctant muse. Within an
Upper East Side hotel, a sophisticated guest and a mysterious bellboy journey outside of time.

erm i want to improve my wrintig skills, for i believe wrintig is an important skill to have. but i am a really bad writer right now. i had created a blog earlier and had posted 2-3 posts on it but i got frustrated of my wrintig and deleted that blog. now i was thinking of starting afresh with a new blog and write book and movie reviews on it. but this post has gotten me in a fix. even i want to write unique stuff instead of movie and book reviews that someone who visits my site won't be really interested in reading. so, you have any idea what stuff should i write on this new blog i'm going to create? i really want to improve as a writer. and i also have this habit of reading, re- reading
Garbage - a complete waste of time!!
I had high hopes for this movie, but still have no idea what was happening, or what I was supposed to get from it. Dont waste your time.
