Critical reception[edit]

One Love has received a good deal of favorable attention:

  • "One Love is, to put it quite simply: incredible." (4/4 stars)[1]
  • "It's very rare to see a short that is so complete, One Love feels like a full length feature film. The story line is tight, no film is wasted, every second is instrumental to the tale." --Terra King, Indie Movie Examiner
  • "Beautifully shot and uniformly well-acted, One Love is a short film that manages what many full length features cannot."[2]
  • "In just 15 minutes, this extremely well-made short weaves together four stories about parenthood..."[3]
  • "One Love includes many heartbreaking story plots that will relate to everyone in a powerful way." (8.5/10 stars)[4]
  • "A well-crafted movie that leaves you wanting more."[5]
  • "A fifteen minute short with the heart and soul of a full length feature film." [6]
  • "The master stroke of One Love is that in the short span of 15 minutes these people and their experiences begin to matter just enough..."[7]
  • "...while I'd like to see an expanded feature-length version of the film to see where he might go with it, it's very good as it is."[8]
