Do we experience love the same way at different times in history? Buster Keaton answers this question the light way. He shows us love in three ages: prehistoric times, Ancient Rome and the roaring 20’s. The expression of (or rather lack thereof…) romantic feelings result in a tornado of events. We meet the very first lovers and rivals of human history, and can admire a delicate and poetic Buster Keaton facing the muscleman Wallace Beery.
