Goldfish Memory

This Irish romantic comedy by director Liz Gill, who has apprenticed with Martin Scorsese, Todd Haynes, and Barry Levinson, seems more attuned to Hugh Grant vehicles than to the work of her edgier mentors. Roughly a dozen characters roam trendy Dublin locales searching for love, but (supposedly like goldfish) they have short memories and learn little from experience. The repetitive behavior and recycled pickup lines add rhythm but no bounce, and the premise of gay, straight and bi couples continuously going back to the same well for companionship seems hackneyed. There are some funny and touching moments, helped along by attractive players, handsome scenery, and a few well-timed edits, but the film is a predictable gloss of other movies, down to its ham-fisted lift from The Graduate. 85 min.
