“Once upon a time I wanted to know what love was. Love is there if you want it to be – you just have to see that it’s wrapped in beauty and hidden away between the seconds of your life. If you don’t stop for a minute – you might miss it.”

When hubby suggested Cashback on last raining Sunday evening, I didn’t expect something decent. A combination of teen comedy and romance sounds just like another American Pie garbage. But both of us were happy after seeing the movie. It is a well-done independent film with interesting plot, great acting (apart from the boss) and dreamy cinematography.

If you haven’t seen it, rent a DVD, you won’t be disappointed. I’d better not to explain how the story goes, but I do like to list a few aspects which make this movie a gem.

The poetic camera movements, many of the shots are very artistic and imaginative. A wonderful selection of music (love the mix of opera, classic and pop. Casta Diva, Boléro, Mysterious Ways…they are blended in perfectly with the story). The British humor, some jokes and gags were so amusing. It reminds us all these silly moments of our life, lol~~  Ah, BTW, Daphne Guinness was the executive producer of this film. She made a very short but stunning appearance at the end.

    I went to read the plot–sounds awesome! I’ve always wondered what people have to fill their mind with working in such jobs.
    Thanks for sharing!
