The cover of "True Love" does not really do it justice, nor does its description. The title also seems inappropriate when viewing the 7 short stories therein, and 'love' seems to be a secondary concern to many of the writers. Being a great fan of short stories, many of which have the ability to convey a wealth of emotions in a mere glimpse of film, makes me somewhat demanding of this genre. Especially when considering that films such as 'Dare' and 'Were the World Mine', had their origins in a short film of the same theme.

Upfront I think two of the seven films should not have been used, as they are neither successful within their own right, nor of any value when compared with the remaining 5. The audience should also be made aware that these short films are relatively old (2004) and thus lack much of the production value one sees today. That aside a successful short story needs very little to leave a lasting impact on the audience, and this is certainly true of 'A Christmas Story" which had me enraged and involved. Moments before I had been a removed and casual observer of a home recording of two young children opening their Christmas presents. Similarly, "History" had me doubting both protagonists, and I remain unsettled as t who was the guilty party.

Moving towards the theme of love "He was Perfect" and "A Little Drama", had me hoping that both the characters would indeed find that love the desired. One however, was left exposed and used, whereas the other had the birthing of something profound.

Don't expect much from these films in the form of acting, production value, and casting. Look at each as an important story that needs to be told, and the experience will be one which will leave you thinking.

I've seen quite a few gay movies and this one beats them all in terms of deceiving cover, low (or no) budget and "pointlessness". It's a miracle (or extreme merchandising) that a "film" like this has ever been brought on dvd.
Oh yes, there is 1 scene is this nonsense worth watching - it takes for about 5 seconds, and I would advice just watch the cover of the dvd and save you another 90 minutes of sheer agony watching this "dvd".
You have been warned!

There are 7 short movies in this collection, some of them being really short :) Just check "Sunday".
Although you can easily notice their low budget, it won't prevent you from enjoying most of them.
The less I liked "A little drama" and "History" (the latter in my opinion was really amatourish and a bit odd).

HASH(0x9e02f234) out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good! 8 May 2005
By Robert Byrd - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I must admit that when this DVD arrived in the mail I took one look at the cover art and thought "what the hell have I wasted my money on?" But, to my surprise, this wonderful compilation of short films (that felt incredibly true to life) turned out to be a great purchase! All the stories are gay themed, and all deal with topics that will resonate with damn near anyone, gay or straigt. They run the gamut from the emergernce of gay identity through youthful innocence to the horror of child molestation (my personal favorite story). The writing is impeccable and very, very credible. Michael J. Saul, the film's impassioned and smart director, has a magnificent way with actors that shows throughout this impressive production. What's most amazing, though, is he made this film for $10,000 using two digital cameras, final cut pro, and a lot of love and dedication from an all volunteer cast and crew. This is a success story of talent, sweat equity and very sound decisionmaking paying off. I applaud Mr. Saul for a job well done and urge anyone reading this review to purchase his DVD, make some popcorn, invite a few friends over and enjoy a remarkably touching show.

HASH(0x9de1f408) out of 5 stars touching and real 2 Feb. 2007
By M. FUSCO - Published on
Format: DVD
Writer/director Michael J. Saul has brought together a consummate cast for his memorable collage of short films. The seven vignettes cover a wide range of gay men and boys finding, keeping, and examining the nature of love. They build in interest and intensity to the quietly spectacular concluding film, A Little Drama, set the music of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde -- a great big drama, indeed, and one of opera's greatest love stories.

Without dialogue, A Little Drama circumscribes a poignant moment in the life of a vulnerable high school boy, perfectly played by sweetly sexy Brett A. Newton. Working the light board of a production of Romeo and Juliet, he falls for the boy playing Romeo (virile, handsome Ryan Thomas). Mesmerized by Ryan's beauty and strength, light boy nearly misses his cues. Whenever Romeo glances his way he melts, panics, yearns, suffers. A world of emotion passes across Brett's beatific face as the two exquisite boys wordlessly play out their gut- and heart-wrenching counterpoint to the stunning music. The exquisite ending is the stuff of which dreams are made.

HASH(0x9df4ea44) out of 5 stars True to life 17 Oct. 2005
By Keith E. Welsh - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie unsettles and pleases. The first and last shorts, *Christmas Story* and *A Little Drama*, are wonderful acts-without-words that explore longing not yet to be fulfilled. The inner stories are of varying merit--*Sunday* is trite, though short--but they add up to a very satisfying collection of shorts. Was he molested? Or wasn't he?

Typical movie troupe where all the themes are dark, all the gay characters are conflicted, and no one is ever happy. I found nothing like love in any of these shorts.

This was horrible. Bad production values, bad plots (or no plots), bad acting and noncharacters. Crappy.
