Love knows no boundaries when a fiery lesbian love affair between two Romanian students is put to the test. It's Alex's first year at university and her world's turned upside-down when she meets savvy and sexy Kiki. Despite her lover's baggage the naïve freshman falls head over heels in love. But threatening their bliss is Kiki's emotionally explosive brother whose attachment to her seems downright incestuous. Directed with a poetic eye, Love Sick spins its quick wit and hard-edged romance into a sublimely sensual portrait of first love. Starring: Maria Popistasu, Ioana Barbu, Tudor Chirila * Romanian with optional English subtitles

A lot of people have complained about the film being in Romanian with English subtitles. Well, what's wrong with that? The clue is in the description: it's a ROMANIAN film! Why shouldn't they use their language? And if you don't speak Romanian, which most English people don't, here's a chance to hear it, while reading the subtitles. How lazy do you have to be not to want to read subtitles?
As for the storyline, two girls, Kiki and Alex, fall in love. The girls are very different in character, and also in background. The sassy, feisty, and very beautiful Kiki, comes from a middle-class, academic background. Alex, on the other hands, is quieter, and her parents run a farm. I found it fascinating to see something I hadn't witnessed before, class differences in Romania.
Things are further complicated by Kiki's brother, with whom she is having incestuous sex. Naturally, this causes tension between the girls.
Although the characters are well-acted by both girls, my favourite has to be Kiki, played by Maria Popistasu. Some viewers might remember her as Vara in the excellent drama Sex Traffic, some years ago now. She also appeared in a drama aout Mary Queen of Scots, as one the the Queen's ladies in waiting. But I have never seen her in a poll of sexy gay women (or women who play gay characters), which I find surprising.
So if you only want to watch a really mainstream movie, in English, with no scary subtitles, give this a miss. On the other hand, if you don't mind watching something a bit different, and find the idea of another culture and language appealing, give this a go. And - did I say this before? - Maria Popistasu is well worth drooling over!
I can't really remember the ending, but it was rather beautiful.
A must see for lesbians too!
