Love. Each of us want it. Even those, who claim they don`t need anybody, still secretely hope for being loved. When we have a crush on somebody, of course, we hope they like us back. But there is a kind of people who like playing love games. One day they show us all signs of affection and another day they are cold and distanced. Such a ‘swing’ just spices up our feelings and though their behavior is actually toxic, we love our teasers only more.
In a «The Gift» short film Uma Thurman`s heroine shows us that such love games makes life interesting. The man she secretely loves, actually admires her back, but instead of simply telling her he invents new and new tricks to make her interested. The fact he is an illusionist allows him to break her routine in the most extraordinary ways.
