Real-life sweethearts Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi head up this indie semi-documentary comedy, scripted by Yi, concerning the meaning of love. Fellow Judd Apatow veteran Nicholas Jasenovec makes his directorial debut with the production.
Equal parts charming and refreshing, Paper Heart is a quirky mockumentary led by the endearing Charlyne Yi.
The segments featuring real people are genuinely affecting, but the realisation that everything else is probably being acted - that truth may be polluted by hoax - gives this otherwise lightweight film a sly, subversive edge.
It's easy to see how this quirky, offbeat approach could seem refreshing within the rarefied, hermetic atmosphere of a festival. Elsewhere, however, it comes across as amateurish and considerably less charming.
