Olga Ruano/Chus de Castro

Our main goal with our short LOVE CRISIS was to spread a message filled with hope regarding the worldwide financial crisis. We didn’t want to talk about politics but about real life. Right from the start, the aim of the screenwriter (Chus de Castro who is also the co-director and co-star of this film) was just to address this issue with her own distinctive voice, never forgetting about all the suffering and the horrible effects of this devastating crisis, but trying to stay positive in order to get through this difficult period. We truly believe that we need inspirational stories, now more than ever. People need to feel identified with inspirational ideas and messages.

Love Crisis is a XXI Century story, it is fun and sad, simple and deep, short but with a never ending epilogue. It is a story inside another story. It talks about the effects of economic crisis through the romantic crisis of a couple, since all kinds of crises begin and end in a very similar way. In fact, once it has started, no matter what the origin was, the only way to get over it is working together to defend a common cause, whatever it might be...whether it is a relationship or a whole country.

We are very sure that audiences will also appreciate all the nuances, messages, metaphors and symbols of this story, such as our turtles based on Darwin's Theory of Evolution of “Surviving is adapting”. People will have fun with our particular sense of humour which is, needless to say, key in all kinds of critical moments and, at the end, they will surely give some thought to what they watched since the epilogue of Love Crisis is not only about our two protagonists, but also about every single one of us. 

We really hope you like it.
