Another charming British film from executive producer David Puttnam, MR. LOVE is about Donald Lovelace (Barry Jackson), a reserved small-town gardener who has captured the fancy of all the women in town, becoming something of a local folk hero. The film begins with his funeral, which is

attended almost exclusively by the women who loved him. As his best friend Theo (Maurice Denham) reminisces, the film flashes back to Lovelace's days above ground. Lovelace comes to the realization one afternoon that he is 50 years old and has never been loved. So he takes time to visit his women

friends, allowing a specific day throughout the week for each of them. Directed by Roy Battersby with subtlety and at a tranquil pace, MR. LOVE exists in a rare world where love is the most important thing to a man. Although there is very little depth or development in the script or the

characterization, MR. LOVE does contain a number of exceptional moments.
