Storyline

This short film was in competition at the Cannes films Festival (2008). It follows two teenagers that leave class and meet in the record store looking for the next Buzzcocks single. As there is only one copy left, they have to listen to it together. Soon enough it becomes into a very funny and honest discovery of sex. Great actors and nicely done, this is definitely one of the coolest portrayals of first time sex and was well deserving of the Palme D'Or.

A great experience

"Love You More" doesn't create anything new; however, it seems to hit us with something already known as if it were completely new, or never thought before. That's the magic of the movies, sometimes. What we have here is a superb example of how music can be powerful, always connecting us with other people who hear it, embrace it, live it, and it becomes an important part of our lives.

We're taken back to a lovely day in 1978, where a boy (Harry Treadaway) and a girl (Andrea Riseborough) are anxious to buy the new Buzzcocks' single 'Love You More'. Only one copy available but the boy is gentleman enough to let the girl have it. Wise choice, cause next thing he knows she invites him to her house so they can listen to it together, which they do and...more! What they share is more than just the love for the music. It's about discovering themselves through their common union which wasn't just the awkward staring and glances at school but maybe love, definitely the sex and the energic, melodic and pleasurable music, everything altogether, hand in hand.

Exalting in some freshness, cute, exciting and well-acted all around "Love You More" is a helluva of piece that everyone can relate in many different ways, fans of the band played in here or not. It speaks volume. Rock on! 10/10
