5.0 out of 5 stars classy period drama
saw this at the italian film festival and it stayed with me, so can't wait to see again on dvd. Sweeping Sicilian locations, great acting by a cast of Italy's most talented and gorgeous actresses and very, very moving - the film is based on a true story. Angela, played by Valeria Solarino, is such a memorable individual - but learns the hard way that growing up female in...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sad story
I'd been wanting to see this film for ages. Good story, pretty scenery, but so sad :( Why couldn't it have had a happier ending? That's true stories for you I guess...

5.0 out of 5 stars classy period drama, 14 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Sea Purple [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
saw this at the italian film festival and it stayed with me, so can't wait to see again on dvd. Sweeping Sicilian locations, great acting by a cast of Italy's most talented and gorgeous actresses and very, very moving - the film is based on a true story. Angela, played by Valeria Solarino, is such a memorable individual - but learns the hard way that growing up female in 19th century Sicily isn't easy. She falls passionately in love with her best friend and sees no reason why they shouldn't be together. Won't spoil the ending, but basically, they find a way of being 'man and wife' and are accepted by the community. I also loved the backdrop of Italian Unification, feudal work practices, the nature of independence and the hypocrisy of the 'Establishment'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 11 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sea Purple [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
This film is just beautiful. The setting is 19th century Sicily, and the story of two young women in love and the way that their society treated them. I was first struck by how beautiful the scenery was, and then how wonderful the acting from all the cast was. The story of these two women really struck a cord with me and the chemistry between them was fabulous. If you want a classic lesbian film, then this one is the one to watch. You'll laugh, and then you'll cry and the ending...well I won't spoil it for you, but I can still see it my minds eye. Very affecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story with a difference, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sea Purple [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I love foreign language films and although this was about a love affair between two women that is not a problem as the story was beautifully told and acted. This is described as a lesbian film but do not be put off by this description because this was an excellent film.The story was unbelievable but was true .The 2 female actors were amazing and deserving of praise. Sex was incidental not graphic and this is a film I can watch and watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, but have a box of tissues near by!!, 5 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Sea Purple [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Read alot of positive reviews for this film on Amazon, before purchase. None of reviews were exaggerated, it's a superb period drama. Found it very easy to follow and will definately watch it again. This movie packs a strong emotional punch, so have a box of tissues near by.

I'd endorse all the other positive reviews. It is poignant & well acted & one certainly does hate the father! Probably not a good idea to watch the 'making of' video before or soon after watching the feature (takes the emotion away).
