The movie's most outstanding point is its capture of emotions. The storyline is simple, but well put: Camille, living a life prescribed for a parish priest's daughter, teaches mythology at a christian college and has a long standing affair with Martin, a colleague. They both are very much under the thumb of the chaplain, who offers them his post but under the condition of their marriage. The change in Camille's life comes through the death of her dog ( a surprise there in store later), because Petra, a woman she meets in the launderette, sees her crying and comforts her. Not by coincidence, they are destined to meet again, and though Camille is at first disgusted by Petra's advances, she soon finds that she is drawn irresistibly towards her, a temptation that proves too strong to resist. The way they fall in love is somehow utterly romantic, no matter what your sexual preference. ( And, as read in a movie guide, "The women are stunners")What is more important here, though, is the falling in love of two beings and two ways of life. The film is underlined by a superb musical score, and the scenes in the circus (Petra's working place) not only lend a touch of magic to the whole thing, they are also really worth seeing. The mood the film conveys is well done, too: always a touch of sadness mingled with mystery.

Saw this a few days after a weekend realising that life is not all cherries and roses - and since watching this beautifully shot movie, have re-evaluated those thoughts again! Life is great!
What an amazing performance by both leads, and direction is superb, with some real great underscored music to deepen the mood of the plot.
The best film I have seen in a long time, if not for the plot itself, but the beautiful Rachel Crawford could have so easily gone OTT. Instead, her character, Petra is played with real sensitivity and understanding of the human condition.
Love does conquer all, of course, and if it is this beautiful, gimme some now!!
Excellent!

This a an example of "lesbian" cinema that is a quite simply a fine film about adult relationships ,joy ,sadness,loss are all here along with the hurt that goes along with the break up of any relationship.

Well handled ,without the silly "hysteria" that so many modern films employ ,also without the contrived airbrushed sex scenes starring perfect plastic people ,that are sadly part of 95% of similar new films exploring relationships of any type ,but especially "lesbian" cinema.
Enough said

Beautifully shot film. If you like romance and passion it has it all. Bit of stereotyping but that aside this film is wonderful for any straight, gay or femminine woman, the best lesbian film i've seen which makes a nice change cos i've seen alot and have been really dissapointed in the lack of love and passion or the screwed up characters that we are often depicted as. Watch with your girlfriend for added pizazz.

I apologize that I will be writing about the regular version since I haven't quite gotten around to watching this yet - but hey, the fact that i bought the uncut version despite already owning another copy already speaks volumes! It's one that I have watched repeatedly over the years when the mood sets it. The circus background truly captivates and relationship sweetly tender.
Dislikes - absolutely none I can think of.

Really good film which was thoroughly enjoyable. The main theme of lesbian seduction was very appealing. Great storyline and a good ending to the film (which is sometimes lacking in lesbian movies).

This is simply more than just a 'lesbian' film. There's a subtley in the way the film explores different themes including sexuality, religion, convention and also opportunity. While at times beautiful and visually enriching, the metaphors used in the film shouldn't be lost on the viewer, and these play a significant part in helping to explore deeper undercurrents among the protagonists. Thoughtful, sensitive and honest this film does not pander to merely one group of society.
