As a lesbian, the film wasn't that bad. I actually ended up fast forwarding through the sex scenes, because up to a certain point it was kind of tasteless and boring. But beyond that the acting is supurb, and it's an honest, coming of age story that might connect to a younger generation. Five stars to the story line richness. Zero stars for the sex scenes (sorry not sorry, it was very mechanical and lacking in intimacy).
Superbly acted with an authenticity rarely seen. Probably the best romantic drama I've ever seen on film. Sadly, people only seem to remember this film for its gratuitous sex scenes. Sure, they were hot & steamy to watch, but ultimately distracted from what was a beautiful, bitter-sweet love story that will linger with you for days.
A love story expressed in such real and intense emotions that you actually feel the raw emotions they express right through the movie......Days after watching this movie my emotions are still lingering and i feel the sadness of the ending .....Amazingly brilliant and totally unforgettable . The best movie i have ever seen, Congratulations guys , well done !!!
