Tagline: There are 18 million people in New York City, but only one like Bella.
Plot: Writer-director Amos Kollek (SUE) tackles the neurotic, fragile, fast-paced world of New York City in FAST FOOD, FAST WOMEN, a bittersweet comedy that shows just how difficult it is to find love in modern times. The revolving story focuses on Bella (Anna Thomson), a waitress who is on the verge of her thirty-fifth birthday and trapped in a winless affair with a popular Broadway producer. Her mother sets her up with Bruno (Jamie Harris), an unpublished writer who is forced to drive a cab in order to support his newly inherited two children. Also thrown into the mix are Paul (Robert Modica), a sensitive middle-aged man who finds himself falling in love with the simple, kind Emily (Louise Lasser), and Seymour (Victor Argo), Paul's friend who has become infatuated with Wanda (Valerie Geffner), a beautiful, educated exotic dancer. In trying to outthink their situations and make sure everything proceeds smoothly this time around, the characters react against their better judgments, shooting themselves in the foot in the process, which threatens to ruin the fairytale ending that everyone so desperately wants. Kollek's film is an entertaining, though at times excruciatingly painful, viewing experience, due to the honest but misguided actions of its characters.
