Lana in Love

a Bashar Shbib film

LANA IN LOVE

Fiction, 74:00 min, 1991, color, NTSC.

 

Synopsis

Once the ad ran in the "personals" you'd think that Lana (Daphna Kastner) would just sit back and choose from the young men who'd come calling. Well, think again!

Unfortunately for Lana, she encounters Marty (Clark Gregg), a cocky, beer-guzzling plumber who is sent to Lana's address by mistake. He thinks he's stumbled upon a beautiful young business woman's attempts to seduce him. And she thinks he's the doctor that responded to her ad – although, with his tool kit in hand and his name printed on his shirt, he’s a bit different than what she imagined.

When the real doctor (Ivan Roth) calls, life for Lana becomes even more complicated. What follows is a hilarious adventure of failed romance and twisted human relationships. Will Lana get her pipes checked? Will Marty get his tool kit back? Does it really pay to advertise?

"...A very touching and extremely wonky portrait of a bizarre love affair... Shbib and Kastner pull it off with wit and charm."
Noah Cowan, Toronto Eye

"...Lana goes for the laughs"
Norman Witner, The Toronto Star

"...An amusing tale of mistaken identity...Clark Gregg makes an impressive screen debut..."

Love $ Greed

a Bashar Shbib film

LOVE $ GREED

Fiction, Comedy, 80:15 min, 1991, color, NTSC.

 

Synopsis

Robert and Alexandra (Franck Bruynbroek, Melissa White) haven’t had the best marriage. Living separately for quite some time, they are stunned to find out that an eccentric uncle Leopold has left them $23 million. But there's one condition, they have to produce a child within one year. That news doesn't exactly cheer their current mates, Suzie (Lori Eastside) and Ted (Dick Monday); but the foursome are willing to give it a try.

They all move into Leopold's mansion to conceive the "money baby", with a certified witness (David Charles), the uncle's devoted butler (Ivan Roth) and a gaggle of therapists in tow. They might not produce a child, but you can be sure there will be plenty of laughs when the foursome show both their love and their greed.

Love $ Greed is a romantic comedy that offers a skewed look at contemporary relationships, personal wealth and the ever-deflating value of love.

"...a funny movie about lust, love and greed... (Melissa) White is a natural."
Suzan Ayscough, Variety
