One reviewer stated that the entire purpose of this film was to exposewhat a scam the entire "mail order bride" industry was. I completelydisagree. I think the point of the movie was to explore and show thedifferent experiences and motives of the men and women using theseservices, which it did quite well. Some of these men seemed to haveunrealistic expectations, looking for a super model type wife eventhough they themselves were overweight and older, but a couple seemedvery genuine and sincere in their search to connect with someone. Itwas disheartening to see one man who was outright scammed and misled bya woman, and two more who were likely scammed. Two of the couples doget married, and the bond between one of them is quite evident and theyseemed very genuine and in love--it was cute to watch them. The nicestthing about this film is that it shows the honest perspectives of bothsides and even some of the parents, and it's very nice that it followsthe story for quite some time (at least a year, if not more--I didn'tkeep track) to show how some of the relationships didn't work out whileothers seemed to get better.
Love Me is a character-drive narrative that follows desperate men on their quest for love through the modern 'mail-order bride' industry in Ukraine. The film highlights the complete process of finding a partner in a foreign land, showing the Western male and Ukrainian female perspectives.
