Product Description

Benzina is a story of lovers Stella and Lenni who live in blissful isolation in a remote petrol station. But the shadow of Lenni’s super-bourgeois mother hovers threateningly over her life, the two girls’ love and their desire to escape together. Then an accident – or maybe a crime – spirals into a desperate night-time journey, and Lenni and Stella’s closeness is tested to the limits as they decide what to do and where to go next …

1.0 out of 5 stars Benzina 7 April 2006
By A Customer
Absolutley biz, not even worth the 1 star! I can usually watch a film to the end, even if I'm just curious as to what happens......not with this one, my girlfreind & I sat down to watch it one Sunday & after about half an hour I had to switch it off. Now I can understand low budget etc but this was dire, the acting was terrible and the story was pathetic. Diva raved about this when it was released the other year, well I'd never watch anything they said was good again!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage! Wish I could Have Given it a Zero! 15 May 2008
Think Thelma and Louise but the production budget is four quid.

The acting in this 'film' is worse than amateur dramatics at the village hall.

I can't believe Amazon had this rubbish under their world cinema category for rent. I feel cheated.

Nice dog in the film though. He was the best actor!

1.0 out of 5 stars No plot, no point 9 Jan 2007
By Teapot
There's no plot and no point to this film - the best thing about it is that you can still read the subtitles while fast forwarding, halving the time wasted on sticking with it to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars LESBIAN LOVE ON THE RUN! 18 Oct 2003
By Jed Ryan - Published on

When a movie starts out with a shot of a dead blonde woman, seemingly
murdered and surrounded by what appears to be cocaine, you know you're in for a
wild ride. And in "Gasoline", your companions on this road trip are two young
lesbian lovers named Stella and Eleonora. "Oh, no! Not another movie about
a pair of killer lesbians!" you may be saying to yourself. But "Gasoline"
("Benzina"), the new lesbian-themed action flick imported from Italy, stands out
in that the action is seriously bolstered by the dynamics between the two
chicks. They're in love, and it's both tender and hot to watch at the same time.
These two gals on the run may both be a bit crazy, but they're certainly not
as delusional as the pair of sapphic lovers in "Heavenly Creatures" or as
deranged as the duo of murderous gals in "Baise Moi". Stella (Maya Sansa) is a
tomboyish brunette with a "don't-f*ck-with-me" kind of attitude. Eleonora is a
mousy, bespectacled blonde who seems fragile... and possibly a bit mentally
unbalanced. At a somewhat isolated gas station/coffee bar, Stella (who may
remind you of a butch Winona Ryder) does the car repairs, while Eleonora (or
"Lenni") tends the bar. Their quiet life is disrupted when Lenni's glamorous
mother (Mariella Valentini) pays a surprise visit. Mom is upset about her
daughter's living conditions, and she gets more upset when she peeks in the window
and sees the two girls engaged in a passionate kiss-- at one point confronting
Eleonora with, "You've quit school to become a lesbian gas station attendant?!"
Like in "Thelma & Louise", Stella and Eleonora inadvertently find themselves
in a bad situation. In "Gasoline", the bad situation is the accidental death
of Eleonora's mother. So... the two gal pals take off on a road trip that
doesn't, shall we say, go quite as smoothly as planned. Just what are they
going to do with Mom's dead body? With 20 million lire in hand (the equivalent of
about 12,000 American dollars), the two lovers plan to dump the body and
escape to Tunisia. At this point, we the audience have just the barest minimum of
character development. But we learn more about the two young ladies towards
the the middle of the movie...

Will the girls have an easy ride? Well, two guesses won't be necessary.
Stella and Eleonora accidentally strike a motorcycle-riding priest with
their car, forcing them to reluctantly offer the middle-aged holy man a ride--
with the mother's dead body still in the trunk! As if that dose of Catholic
guilt weren't enough, Lenni is hearing her dead mama's voice in her head during
the whole trip-- and needless to say, it ain't a voice of approval. To make
matters worse, the two lovers are stalked by a trio of troublemakers-- two guys
and a girl-- who are seeking revenge for Stella scratching their car at the gas
station earlier in the movie. In between the volatile situations, the two
girls find some time to engage in some very hot lovemaking scenes. Whoa!
"Gasoline" cumulates into a finale which, quite literally, is no less than explosive.

"Gasoline", the directorial debut of Monica Stambrini, succeeds as both a
tense thriller as well as an unorthodox love story. It makes you think:
Italians may already have the upper hand when it comes to cooking, opera singing,
and making love. With "Gasoline", they may just show that they can blow us
away when it comes to making sexy action flicks as well. Buon lavoro! (In
Italian with English subtitles.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Thelma and Louise do Italy! 13 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Two lovely young girls (a pretty blonde and her butchy brunette girlfriend) fall in love working together at a gas station/luncheonette, and then are forced to run away after they accidentally kill the mother of the pretty blonde. Along the way they have a run in with a couple of drunken guys and their equally blotto girlfriend, all of which leads to a fiery conclusion. There's lots of sub-titled dialogue in between, including the ghost of the pretty blonde girl's mother telling her what she should do. Also, some surprisingly sexy moments, including a hot make-out session in a public bathroom between the two young women. Interesting, but too action-oriented for an erotic flick and not enough action for an adventure flick.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wish I went up in flames 11 Jan 2004
By "mrittercos" - Published on
I saw this at the Pikes Peak Lavendar Film Festival and I thought it was absolutely horrible. I thought the acting was retched and the storyline bounced all over the place. Some people might like this dvd, but I would never waste my time on it again. The worst part is I fell asleep so I don't know what happened at the end ;o) Happy hunting.
