Steve Dick and Linda Belinda are porn stars working together. They start falling in love on the set...but still "Pirates of the Purple Pearl" wants to be finished. Go from there.

How about BtI for more than two? Start with two characters already having been out on a date once, then let others interfere. See who comes out a couple.

How about a novice becoming the bride of Christ. The dates are between her and a statue of the crucifixion in the chapel.

Also, between a mother and her as yet unborn child.

Can you also run it for the last 3 dates of a relationship, about parting on good terms?

Rival snipers who fall in love with each other! That would be so cool!

I think it is funny that we've come up with all these macho ways to avoid the discomfort of the central tenet of BtI.  Not saying thay wouldn't be fun, I'm just observing that they are probably an outgrowth of unease at the fundamentally simple and potentially scary romantic core.

Agreed, but I still think it would be cool.

A simple, yet beautiful conflict: Teenagers falling in love. Not like in the movies, but the real thing. You' re both 14 years old, and there's your own inscecurity, peer pressure and the general drag of adolescence to deal with. Come on, you know it can be excruciating.

Does anyone know the film "Fucking Amal"? It's exactly that, starring tow girls, one of which is quite the loud-mouthed queen of the recess ground, the other is the silent kid, who's just moved to the small twon of Amal. The beautiful thing about the movie is how it avoids the cliches of the coming out story, but makes a point of how the girls manage to resist the pressure to define what kind of relationship they "really" have for parents, teachers and peers. We're not actually sure, whether they are a couple at the end of the film, but they walk away hand in hand. Could be a touching BtI - setup, too...if you dare to go for that emotional core instead of the safe cliches.

Oh Man, Fucking Åmål is a great movie and a perfect BtI set-up.  Good call.

It is a brilliant move. Exactly the kind of truly human drama and romance that I think Breaking the Ice is all about.
