EXCLUSIVE: Love Triangle’s hottest match shares divisive confession
Love Triangle’s Yannick Samarasinghe is a walking embodiment of the phrase “tall, dark and handsome” and even runs his own business, so he needs no help with dating.WATCH: Love Triangle | OFFICIAL TRAILER | A Stan Original Dating SeriesIn the past he’s dated models, athletes and Instagram influencers, confessing to WHO exclusively: “I’m quite a physical person and I know what I like in a woman.“I’ve always dated women that you’d expect a guy who looks like me to date, not to sound like a d—k.”But in a surprisingly candid moment, Yannick admits that focusing on looks alone has left him longing for a deeper connection with a woman.That is why a dating show where you have no clue what the people you’re matched with look like really appealed to him.Yannick admits that focusing on looks alone has left him longing for a deeper connection with a woman.“Because of the way I look sometimes I get put in a box… but there’s a lot more to me,” he says.“To build a connection not knowing what anyone looks like, that was the clincher for me to do the show.”His focus on the show was to just be himself, that way if he got a “bad edit” or was “made out to be a villain”, at least he knew he was true to himself.“If you’re a fake person trying to pretend be something you’re not and you get the bad edit anyway you’re like ‘well f—k’,” he laughs.“Because of the way I look sometimes I get put in a box… but there’s a lot more to me."“You’re probably living in a bit of a fake reality if you go on a show thinking that you have control of that.”On a more personal note, Yannick recognises that his casting in Love Triangle as a mixed-race man of Sri Lankan and Portuguese descent is a big deal in itself.“I’ve always been the token Black guy.

‘R.M.N.’ Film Review: Cristian Mungiu Explores Romania’s Fractured History Through One Conflicted Town
this long in an industrial bakery watching the two managers fill out EU grant applications?Soon enough the corners come together and the shape becomes more clear as the part-Roma, part-German Matthias (Marin Grigore) returns to his native Transylvania town either to make amends with his estranged wife Ana (Macrina Barladeanu) or, failing that, to rekindle the flame with former mistress Csilla (Judith State). By way of filial duties, Matthias also has to deal with an ailing father (whose need for an MRI — RMN in Romanian — gives the film its title) and a son too shell-shocked by that unknown forest sight to speak.But the film is just as much Csilla’s story, following the native Hungarian as she carves out a comfortable middle-class existence, devoting herself to her EU-assisted startup and sacrificing whatever personal projects she might have in order to gain affluence in a post-industrial town whose long-shuttered mine has left both water source and the hearts of the men who lost their jobs poisoned for good.Even as the “who” comes sharper into focus, we still can’t quite crack the “why.” Why do we follow Matthias through a seemingly aimless series of encounters as he and his fellow townsfolk debate the finer points of Romanian history? Why do we spend so much time with Csilla as she posts a series of job listings (“Don’t mention the salary,” advises her boss) on every door in town?  And why the urgent need to underline every character’s particular ethnic background?The answer — call it a skeleton key — comes at the one-hour mark upon the arrival of three Sri Lankan migrants to fill the still-vacant posts.
