God of Love: The Amorous Misadventures of a Lounge-Singing Darts Champion

God of Love: The Amorous Misadventures of a Lounge-Singing Darts Champion

God of Love is a comical, quirky short film by the funny young writer-director Luke Matheny, which just won the 2011 Academy Award for Live-Action Short Film. Matheny is a New York University film student who also plays the lead in his film, which features several pop-jazz standards and a “Woody Allen-type” humor.

The film follows the amorous misadventures of Raymond Goodfellow, a lounge-singing championship dart player who is desperately in love with a fellow band-mate, but she only has eyes for his best friend. The crooner prays daily to God for a way for his beloved to fall in love with him. Finally, one evening his prayers are answered when he’s given a box of magical darts with supernatural Cupid-like, passion-inducing powers. Raymond decides to attempt using the darts to make his own love connection, which leads to a comic questioning of whether even the gods can force love to happen.
