Love, Divided Review: Netflix’s Breezy Rom-Com Might Just Steal Your Heart

Love, Divided

Netflix has had a packed month and while there have been several brilliant thriller and mystery movies and series’ sometimes you simply want to unwind and watch something light-hearted and breezy. Well, looks like the streaming platform has you covered this weekend with the release of Love, Divided starring Aitana, Fernando Guallar, Natalia Rodríguez, Miguel Ángel Muñoz, and Paco Tous.

Directed by Patricia Font, this latest Netflix movie ticks all our boxes when it comes to a perfect romantic comedy that uses a simple trope of next-door neighbours and turns it into something unique. In this review, we will tell you why we believe Love, Divided deserves a spot on your weekend watchlist, so make sure you don’t miss out!

A Unique Twist to Next-Door Neighbour Trope

Love, Divided has two protagonists, both of which are completely different from each other, yet have similarities that slowly and steadily bring them together in the oddest way possible. Valentina, a pianist, moves into a new house after a rough break-up, and on the very first night is absolutely terrified by the noises in her new house.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the wall, is David. As it appears, David hasn’t left his home in a long time now and doesn’t plan on doing so either. In addition, he needs complete peace and silence when he is working, which Valentina struggles to offer upon their first meeting – talking to each other through the wall between them.

It turns out, that the wall between them doesn’t just separate the houses but also the district, so bumping into each other might not be the most likely thing to happen, and somehow, both of them find this idea rather appealing, even after they enjoy each other’s company, through the wall. After everything going on in their lives, they decide to try something new.

Dating without seeing one another might not be the most outlandish idea, considering Love is Blind has created a whole franchise from this concept, but Valentina and David’s relationship does stand out a little. It is also interesting to see this idea put into a movie as opposed to a reality dating show.

Love, Divided might not end up as one of the most critically acclaimed movies of the year, but it surely will steal some hearts. Valentina and David have a few setbacks in their relationship, despite falling for each other sight unseen, but they get through it in the simplest way possible, and eventually decide to break the wall, giving the viewers the wholesome and much-anticipated ending they deserved.
