Nothing "mellow" about this lesbian melodrama
10 October 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Bathos rules the day in this apparently sincere combination of mild sexploitation and message picture. The narrative is so insubstantial that I am loathe to reveal its few turns here--rather, I urge you to marvel at it for yourself! You may find yourself surprised to be caught up in this story of a woman-girl-man love triangle despite the turgid soap opera histrionics. I have seen two different splicey, pink-faded prints of this film, leading me to make the following plea: Restore THAT TENDER TOUCH now! I hope it's not already too late.
