A love story that depicts love with artificial intelligence, filmed with smartphones.

Cast & Credits
The focus is purely on the leads with just a few relevant secondary characters.By keeping it simple,it makes you believe in the love between an AI and a human.The closed world of Haruka and the impact Love makes on it.
The repetitive scenes seemed fine at the beginning but after a point,it feels draggy and made the 1 hr 30 min seem longer.The lack of surprising twists combined with the easy predictability was also disappointing.
Despite all its flaws it's the actors that make it worth watching.Saito Takumi as the voice of the AI ‘Love’ captures your attention even without an appearance.His voice adds warmth and life, making you forget that ‘Love’ is not a real person but an AI.Aoi Morikawa has done well as Haruka, it's easy to see her transformation from a dejected woman to one in love and motivated.
The open ending is not bad considering the fact that this is as good as it gets in an AI love story.
The curiosity aspect is what makes the first time watchable and got me through the sometimes boring movie,without it I highly doubt a second watch would be enjoyable.
