4 out of 5 stars
The bold, vivid Lovesickness consists of four stories about love and the lovelorn: A boy learns about romance through the discovery of his father’s infidelity and from his own innocent explorations; an obsessed passenger holds a bus hostage to get its driver to marry him; a couple bickers in a car heading nowhere; a love triangle thrives among geriatrics. The film’s interwoven-vignette style is reminiscent of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s work, with Lovesickness’s aesthetic, dialogue and pacing capturing Puerto Rico in the same way Amores Perros did Mexico City.
