5.0 out of 5 stars HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE, 4 Sep 2008
This is still the bench mark for the making of any film about love,sexuality, and relationships about young people, especially in the 12years to 20years age group.In fact "Oranges" should be required viewing for any person making a film about blossoming sexuality, without being either trite, judgemental, holier than though or hysterical!
Simply brilliant!

3.0 out of 5 stars a silver screen little gem!, 16 July 2008
This review is from: Monique [DVD] (DVD)
I actually saw this film at my local cinema when it was originally released, and I thought then that it was ahead of it's time and not just another female exploitation film.

I think that when you look at the obsession in the "Lad's Mag's", on Internet sites and the "Adult Films/DVD's" with "girl on girl" scenes, this seventies cautionary tale has a lesson for some to learn, whilst being a great deal of fun; not to mention the clothes and the furniture and fixtures, bringing an embarrassed memory to my-self and many others of a certain age!

I would definately recommend you watch this film, it is a enjoyable slice of recent history, and a real hoot!

Enjoy Rickwill47

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange days!, 17 Jun 2008
This is without doubt one of the most extraodinary films I have ever seen, it is not for the faint hearted or squeamish, suffice to say it makes "Idiots, Myra Brekenbridge or Beyond the Valley of the Dolls", seem mainsteam by comparison!
I have to say that I found parts unwatchable,ie; The Food "Orgy" and what follows!!

However in spite of all of the aforesaid, it is almost prophetic in view of what is now available at the click of a mouse.

I would recomend this film providing you have an open mind and a very strong stomach, if only for the cameo of the late George Melly.

Finally I hope the players where well paid, because they certainly deserved it!!

Cheers!!

5.0 out of 5 stars life under a despot, 10 April 2008
This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
a brilliant evocation of life lived under a dictatorship (Franco's Spain), as viewed through a childs eyes and imagination.
Probably the best film I have seen for many years, truly eye-opening Cinema!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars welcome change, 12 Feb 2008
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

2.0 out of 5 stars pass me the sick bag, 11 Feb 2008
To mention this "bubble gum" bore in the same breath as "maedchen in uniform" is an insult to that "classic" piece of German cinema ,in fact this is more of a poor re-make of "The Childrens Hour" in terms of the hysteria!

This film is so obvious and contrived that you know the end after the first ten minutes ,there are no surprises even to the thunderstorm during the obligitory airbrushed "sex scene" plus the type cast Teacher ie; arty ,poetic and of course soft spoken ,and therefore either a Dyke a "commie" or both in the USA bible belt!

Sadly this type of saccharine yawn has been made many times before ,in many different venues eg:Prison ,Reform school ,High school etc.

Unless your a "Mills and Boon freak avoid !
If you want to see two women getting it on ,log on to U-Tube or similar ,or watch a really good film such as "Desert Hearts" or "When night is falling".
Enough said

2.0 out of 5 stars what a waste, 3 Feb 2008
Music great ,players brilliant ,therefore i have to ask how they got mixed up in this load of tosh!
It's not funny in any way ,it is in fact fluff and nonsense.

This film supports the reasoning that all's fair in love and that it is all right to destroy someones' marriage ,relationship or family as long as you get what you want!

It also supports that old radical lesbian belief that a "hetrosexual female hasn't met the right woman yet" ,although if what we read ,hear and see around us right now there may be some truth in that "belief"?

Because it appears that meeting a female who hasn't had a sexual encounter with another female is almost unheard of.

RENT DON'T BUY!!

3.0 out of 5 stars poor quality spoils viewing, 10 Jan 2008
This is another take on the "Lolita" story ,with more emphasis on the scenery ,which help make this watchable ,apart from the awful grainy and uneven condition of the film.
Rent don't buy!
