"Here Come the Girls" is a new compilation of shorts that has to be a must for the serious collector of lesbian films. Lesbian life does happen in all shapes, sizes and ages: this sophisticated collection offers compelling glimpses into the realities - sometimes sweet sometimes bitter - that go on behind closed doors. A wide variety of experiences, photographed with flair and compassion, this is a watch to remember.

This selection of short films provides some very interesting portraits of lesbian life. Some images are tender and some hard-hitting but that is because these are believable depictions of how women operate together.

"Nine up-and-coming and established female filmmakers bring you a refreshing variety of shorts that look at all aspects of lesbian life and love, from contemporary scenarios of mistaken identity and bedroom hang-ups to period pieces concerning secret rendezvous and forbidden relationships. Sobering issues such as racial stereotypes and domestic violence are also touched upon, as are tales of wistful romance, launderette comedy and teenage friendships boiling over into sexual desire"

An interesting and diverse selection of shorts. The acting is rough at times, but I enjoyed most of them and I think they're well worth a watch. Standout works for me were the moving and sad "Congratulations Daisy Graham" and time piece "Private life".

As a big fan of lesbian short film of course this has to be in my collection. I can normally only find this stuff in lgbt film festivals and it's a crime that distributors aren't dishing up more. A great selection of funny and fascinating.

It did not look like a proper lesbian film as it had a few men in it plus it was hard to take it seriously as sexually oriented film in which it was a real turn off IN WHICH IT WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY I PAID FOR IT.

I was lucky enough to be cast as one of the party guests in the film 'Private Life'. I'm the one with a rather pronounced slap-head chatting to a drag queen at the party. Anyway, although I may be biased, because I'm in it, 'Private Life' really is a great little gem of a film. I have such happy memories of that very long, very gruelling, very cold and very repetitive day in Leeds and Bradford.

The story itself if a very simple love story, and although some critics may call it a "Lesbian Love Story", this isn't totally true - it's just a love story. Full stop.

The director Abbe has set the mood perfectly. Some period films like this end up being victims of their own decadance and trying to over-reach. Not this film. Nostalgic, warming, cosy and though provoking, 'Private Life' is a film you will enjoy many times.

Really enjoyed this collection of short films. The one set in Manchester was my favourite.
The films explore more than just Lesbianism, also transgender issues and gay rights.
A really good nights entertainment.
