Photographer Francesca builds Maia's confidence while having to control her own obsessive and sexual desires towards Maia. As they spend more time together, Maia becomes the object of her obsession and things slowly spiral out of control.
I think this is the third time I have had this on lovefilm . If I find films intensely boring , I fast forward them , hence having no recollection of this , until the open scene . I am now watching all the way through , perhaps it will have meaning . It is already in my bad books , being severely hearing impaired , whilst once again a production company , cannot spare the coppers to subtitle . This film is a psycological study of seual obsession . What makes it altogether unbelieveable , is the husband is clearly camp , so his obsession towards his wife is more possessive jealousy . The male character and psychiatrist are , detached from the two female progenitors , who seem so ill matched , it beggars belief that intense need for each other , could develop over a weekend . That said , it happens regularly , hence all the relationships that implode . The search for personal knowledge and sexual harmony continues , as life and all its confusions evolves . If you want to waste 90 minutes , go ahead , but this is turgid .
I loved the performances in the adored, this film always keeps you guessing what's going to happen next , great chemistry , very thrilling and seductive , the story was clever and the scenery was amazing .
This film was very impressive. The sexual desire, mystery and suspense played out by the two leading ladies is what really drives the film and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not just your average gay and lesbian movie, this film is original and challenges some of the perceptions of gay cinema.
Maia (Ione Butler) is a model who wants to remake herself. She trust herself to Frankie (Laura Martin-Simpson) a photographer who takes her to her secluded home own by the Shellys. Frankie is compulsively meticulous. She has desires for Maia who she convinces to spend the weekend.
Maia is having issue with her husband and says, "I need my space." We know what that means guys. Meanwhile there is a subplot of a man (Jake Maskall) talking to a transgender looking psychologist (Caroline Burns Cooke) about life and love. He is apparently connected to one of the two women, but we don't know who or how.
The film consists mostly of Frankie attempting to seduce Maia, interrupted by a guy talking to a shrink. The production awkwardly comes together at the end.
The acting was fair. The story didn't move. I didn't really care about any of the characters. I enjoyed watching Frankie putting everything back in its place after Maia moved it an inch...and the fact she sleeps nude.
A mediocre Indie stye rental.
Parental Guide: F-bomb F/F sex nudity (Laura Martin-Simpson, Ione Butler)
This is a clever film that had me captivated from the start. Francesca, is seductive and mysterious and unpredictable in nature. I was always wondering what was going to happen next and didn't want the film to end. There is passion between the two woman but you find yourself guessing that all is not as it seems. The ending confirms this with a twist that I wasn't expecting. The film left me considering what had really happened but this is much down to interpretation. However, my interpretation was that Francesca and her man had known each other from the beginning and had set Aida up. An excellent lesbian film and totally original with good acting and a great plot.
So boring and badly written. The two lead characters are equally annoying and weird. One is a pushy, forward photographer, the other an air head model that seems in her own world most of the time. Much of the movie consists of them alone in a house together and some weird conversations. Some nudity and intimacy; nothing very graphic. The ending is just unexpected and weird. This film was very slow moving and tedious.
