Beautifully shot movie
on 19 October 2012
I have sat through a lot of terrible lesbian films. Films that have made me angry with how bad they are, films that I couldn't understand how they got made because they were so bad, films that I gave up on to go and do the washing up. My interest in lesbian cinema had dwindled to an all time low when I came across the trailer for this film on youtube and ended up watching it, not expecting much. I was completely taken aback by the quality of this film and I immediately came to Amazon to purchase the dvd as I know I will want to watch this again.
Everything about this film is brilliant. The script has some wonderfully realistic dialogue and family dynamics, I love the subtlety of the acting and the beauty of the cinematography and the leads have great chemistry. I actually couldn't recommend this film more. A couple of the reviewers seem to struggle with the subtitles but I believe their poor reviews are due to some kind of innate fear of foreign film (not that they were actually sure which foreign country this was set in). I loved this film, it's nearly as good as Avengers Assemble. In a very different way...
