Maybe humdrum, but cute.
21 November 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I do not think it was all that obvious, and the fact that it is a Europeen film, not Hollywood, prevents it from falling into all the cliché cracks Hollywood has a tendency of falling into when the script is just so-so. I am not so hung up on corporate stuff - big offices with shiny surfaces leaves me somewhat cold - what I liked about the film was the lovestory between the women. I thought it nice and - maybe humdrum - but believable. The other pluss point was that the two ladies where way out of their teens and nice looking. And they where not afraid of their own feelings. Sexuality does not stop at 30. Thanks for that. If you want to chill out a couple of hours and want to see a lesbian-oriented film - this could well be the one.
