The Lost Love

Witness the profound evolution of love and loss in this beautifully crafted short drama.


Dominic Collins’ short drama unfolds as a poignant exploration of the intricate dynamics of relationships, particularly delving into the labyrinth of emotions during the post-break-up phase. At its heart, ‘The Lost Love’ is a captivating study led by Ellie Nunn’s portrayal of Diane, a relationship therapist who orchestrates clandestine interviews with a fractured former couple, Florian (Isobel Laidler) and Nora (Rosa Coduri-Fulford), without their mutual knowledge.

What sets this tale apart is its innovative narrative structure, threading together disparate timelines to unveil the evolving emotional landscapes of Florian and Nora. Isobel Laidler’s portrayal of the emotionally invested Florian contrasts beautifully with Rosa Coduri-Fulford’s portrayal of the avoidant Nora, creating a dynamic interplay of vulnerability and detachment.

The film’s emotional resonance is heightened by the outstanding performances of the entire female cast, who infuse their characters with depth and authenticity. Holly Remmett’s thoughtful production and Dylan Bruce’s well framed cinematography further elevate the narrative, lending it a lyrical and immersive quality.

In its exploration of love, loss, and the complexities of human connection, ‘The Lost Love’ emerges as a profoundly moving and relatable piece of cinema. With its charm, experimentation, and poetic sensibility, Collins’s directorial venture leaves a lasting impression, inviting audiences to reflect on the multifaceted nature of relationships and the intricacies of the human heart.
