Laos 1977, a time of political turmoil: John Everingham (Michael Landon) is nothing more than a harmless photographer who has been living in the country for more than a decade - or so he wants to make everyone believe, because actually he is a political journalist. Eventually, the country's top spy smasher general Kaplan (Jürgen Prochnow) finds out that Everingham is more than he seems, but since he wants to get his hands not just on him but his informers as well, he does not arrest him but supplies him with a companion - lovely Keo (Laura Gemser), a dedicated Laotian medical student the general is in love with herself.

The general's plan seems to work, because Everingham soon falls in love with Keo, and eventually he confesses to her that he is a political journalist. But two things go wrong with the general's plan: a) Everingham opens Keo's eyes to the suffering in her country, and b) she falls in love with him as well.

When the general realizes his plan involving Keo leads to nowhere, he first challenges Everingham to a Thai-boxing arena fight to humiliate him before the eyes of everyone, but is defeated himself instead, then he has him incarcerated. Since Everingham is American though, the general can't just torture the truth out of him, instead he uses all kinds of psychological tricks to make him confess - to no avail, and eventually he has no other choice than to exile him from Laos.

Everingham promises Keo to return and take her with him though, and while she is pretending to fall in love with the general for good to cover up her escape plans, he trains to become an expert diver to dive through river Mekong and take her to the other side (= Thailand) under water.

Of course everything ends happily.

This movie features one of Priscilla Presley's first performances, but she only has a very small role that hardly matters to the plot.

 

In the beginning, Love is Forever pretends to be a fairly interesting film, an espionage drama with current political subtext, but soon enough, all this is thrown overboard to just tell a cheesy lovestory with no deeper meaning whatsoever - and it's not even good at telling its story, plus it never even tries to rise above its made-for-television origins direction-wise.

 

By the way, Laura Gemser was credited as Moira Chen in this one to obscure the fact that she was also a star in Italian erotica, much to her dismay - and it's kind of ironic, too, since even some of her silly sex movies have more political significance or deeper meaning than this one.
