Love You More is a delightful 15-minute short directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, director of Nowhere Boy, the –for some failed- biopic of John Lennon in 2009. Nothing to do with Love You More, directed a year earlier: the short film, which was in competition at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, is an honest and moving portrait of the discovery of sex between two teenagers through the emotional power of music.
The director and visual artist achieved, through a careful art direction and these natural locations that only London has, transporting us to the British summer of 1978, when the Buzzcocks had just released the single Love You More. Two teenagers are looking for the single in a record shop, and finding the last copy, they decide to hear it together. The listening in loop mode and the sound of vinyl leads them to a passionate teenage love.
Good performances of Andrea Riseborough y Harry Treadaway filmed with a conspirational look of someone that possibly was in that record store and listened Love you more in loop mode.
