5.0 out of 5 stars Awesomely beautiful film, 12 April 2010
By 
This review is from: Spider Lilies [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
We went to see this film at a LGBT film festival as it was the only thing we could get tickets for and were absolutely blown away. It's smart, beautifully acted and filmed and a real breath of fresh air in lesbian cinema. The leads are beautiful and the bond between them sparkles but the film also touches on serious themes of loss, family responsibilities and redemption. It's ultimately uplifting and surprisingly easy viewing (easier, for example, than 'Drifting Flowers' - also, I think, by this director) but makes you think along the way. While some arthouse cinema can be turgid, obscure and alienating, this film is beautiful, stylish and moving. I really loved it and can't recommend it enough.

Hi Clare, could you please tell me which language and subtitle are on this dvd. I asked the amazon customer support first, but they were not able to answer this question. A friend of mine would love to have the movie, but her English is not perfect, so she needs at least English subtitles. Would be great if you could tell me. Thank you, Sandra (If you'd like to send a message it is lucemail@web.de)
