Goldfish Memory is a light-hearted look at the dangers and delights of dating in contemporary Dublin. From a predatory university lecturer, to a cynical cycle courier, to the bisexual who runs off with her boyfriend's 'other woman', this is a wry and witty take on romantic comedy. When Clara sees her boyfriend Tom kissing Isolde, it sets off a chain reaction of romances and heartbreaks until the entire cycle has turned full circle, each character trying to solve the pressing question of what is the perfect relationship. Some favour marriage, others at week-at-a-time arrangement. The only thing they can all agree on is that love is the one thing we can't live without. Exploring the comical nature of love, straight, gay and in-between, Goldfish Memory brings to life the staying that what goes around, comes around... and around... and around...
bizare film, storylines could have been better

This is a gay/lesbian film which definetely had potential but in my opinion rushed through each relationship way to fast. The feel of the film was awkward in parts, and some characters seemed unrealistic. I personally did not like the teachers character, and it made me feel uncomfortable to watch when he was seducing his pupils. The storyline between the 2 girls, was much to short, and i wished they had made this into more of a story. There was little falling in love, just more random and brief encounters between the characters. The ending was average, and it was nice to see 2 lesbian characters at the end that seemed fairly normal and feminine, rather than the butch sterotype. Overall the film id say was average, it reminded a little of a low budget love actually.
