Summary Through the story of one woman's year in a room with a view, the film catches its audience up in the collective memories of all those who have loved and lost. Through a study of Liz's obsession and loneliness, the film mixes the particular with the universal to cover the whole gamut of feelings and theories about lost love. Ranging from the popular to the more erudite, snatches of songs, quotes and diary jottings are all stitched together with stories from Liz's past and descriptions in minutiae of her current existence. The B side of love is richly played out through the words of an A team of interpreters from Split Enz, Laurie Anderson and Bob Dylan to Freud, Marge Piercy, Collete and Roland Barthes ."Journey into the dazzling dark night of the romantic soul ... intensely lyrical ... No doubt about it, My life without Steve is the Australian movie of the year." - Peter Kemp, Filmnews.* Winner! AFI Award for Best Experimental Film * Winner! Best Film at the Melbourne Film Festival.
