a gorgeous, sensual delight
4 September 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

A gorgeous, sensual delight. This is one of the most beautiful movies i have

ever seen. It is hard to come by honest romantic lesbian movies and catching

this one on TV was certainly one of the highlights in the past years.

The movie managed to provoke many emotions in me, from joy, to anger, to

deep sorrow and everything in between. It got me started to look into the

Canadian movie scene more, especially on this type of topic, as there are

excellent examples out there, this being a prime one.

Since accidentally buying this film a week ago, I've been watching it almost

everyday. It is a very moving piece, incredibly romantic and beautifully shot. I have no expertise on movie direction but all credit goes to Patricia for her

creativity. Apart from being incredibly gorgeous, the leading ladies gave a very moving performance, which intern moved me.
