Nine short films by female filmmakers from around the world looking at all aspects of lesbian life and love, from contemporary scenarios of mistaken identity and bedroom hang-ups to period pieces concerning secret rendezvous and forbidden relationships. Films included are: 'Wicked Desire' directed by Angela Cheng, 'Below the Belt' directed by Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona, 'Congratulations Daisy Graham' directed by Cassandra Nicolaou, 'Dani and Alice' directed by Roberta Munroe, 'A Soft Place' directed by Suzanne Guacci, 'Private Life' directed by Abbe Robinson, 'Fem' directed by Inge 'Campbell' Blackman, 'Happy Birthday' directed by Roberta Munroe, and 'Late' directed by Guinevere Turner.
"Here Come the Girls" is a new compilation of shorts that has to be a must for the serious collector of lesbian films. Lesbian life does happen in all shapes, sizes and ages: this sophisticated collection offers compelling glimpses into the realities - sometimes sweet sometimes bitter - that go on behind closed doors. A wide variety of experiences, photographed with flair and compassion, this is a watch to remember.
This selection of short films provides some very interesting portraits of lesbian life. Some images are tender and some hard-hitting but that is because these are believable depictions of how women operate together.
some of these mini movies would of made great film,such as private life,below the belt,congratulations daisy graham and maybe dani and alice.fem and sorft place were the poorer of the 9 films.happy birthday was ok but i was put of by how much the actress was trying to look like shane season 2.(lword).wicked desire was full on and also very good a bit like boys dont cry.
As a big fan of lesbian short film of course this has to be in my collection. I can normally only find this stuff in lgbt film festivals and it's a crime that distributors aren't dishing up more. A great selection of funny and fascinating.
"Nine up-and-coming and established female filmmakers bring you a refreshing variety of shorts that look at all aspects of lesbian life and love, from contemporary scenarios of mistaken identity and bedroom hang-ups to period pieces concerning secret rendezvous and forbidden relationships. Sobering issues such as racial stereotypes and domestic violence are also touched upon, as are tales of wistful romance, launderette comedy and teenage friendships boiling over into sexual desire"
An interesting and diverse selection of shorts. The acting is rough at times, but I enjoyed most of them and I think they're well worth a watch. Standout works for me were the moving and sad "Congratulations Daisy Graham" and time piece "Private life".
Really enjoyed this collection of short films. The one set in Manchester was my favourite. The films explore more than just Lesbianism, also transgender issues and gay rights. A really good nights entertainment.
