"God of Love ... exudes the charm, intelligence and romance of the French New Wave with a black-and-white look inspired by 1950's jazz photography and a jazz original score composed by award-winning musician Sasha Gordon featuring songs actually performed by Matheny. The cast of God of Love is uniformly strong, with ... a comfortable, breezy chemistry that sweeps the viewer." - The Independent Critic
This year's Oscar winner for Live-Action Short is a beautifully made, charmer of a film even with the really odd presence of its writer and director Luke Matheny. He's definitely better behind the camera than on screen but he's serviced beautifully by some lovely turns from the rest of his cast and an absolutely gorgeous eye by cinematographer Bobby Webster. It's quaint and sweet and above all entertaining.
