Nina Forever is a British dark comedy, which visualizes the emotional baggage that can come with a new relationship. Nina's untimely death makes it much more difficult for Rob to get over her, with Nina's ghost still considering herself to be Rob's girlfriend, since they never actually broke up. This becomes a major source of stress for Holly, especially since she does everything in her power to erase Nina from Rob's life. However, Nina still keeps showing up and leaving bloody stains on the bed sheets.
Nina Forever is described as a messed up fairy tale, which is a pretty apt description of the film. The film is quite clever in its way of visualizing that some people can never fully get over past relationships, especially if their significant other is deceased. Playing Nina must not have been easy for actress Fiona O'Shaughnessy, who spends the entire film fully nude and covered with blood. However, the real emotional crux of the film belongs to Abigail Hardingham as Holly, who grows increasingly frustrated as the film progresses. Altogether, Nina Forever is a quite enjoyable film about a very twisted love triangle.
