Comment: Christine is a semi-obsessive video artist. One of her projects involves a borrowed photograph of Maya ruins. I don't know which ruins, but a line implies they're in Guatemala.
She enlarges this photo and films herself and another character in front of it, as if they're really at the ruins. She ruminates about how life is kind of like the ruins. You build something great but it inevitably falls apart, leaving you alone.
This video is the one the art gallery features when Christine gets her big break. Even though it plays for only a few seconds, we can surmise that it represents one of the movie's themes. Namely, the yin and yang of life. The inability to connect, find love, fulfill one's dreams vs. the desire to connect, find love, fulfill one's dreams.
Anyway, Me and You and Everyone We Know is definitely a quirky romantic comedy. It's probably more true to life than most Hollywood romances. It doesn't have the usual moments that make audiences cry, but it also doesn't have the usual clichés.
These factors even out and make the movie about as good as the usual romance. Rob's rating: 8.0 of 10.
