Storyline

1883, Baycliff, an isolated English village on the Irish Sea. Two women's friendship becomes passion. Cynara, a sculptor, alone, befriends Byron, a visitor who's left Paris in unhappiness. They ride horses, talk, play chess, and exchanging tenderness. Byron inspires Cynara as she sculpts, Cynara becomes Byron's muse as she writes. Then each imagines expressing physical passion to the other, Cynara's visions in black and white, Byron's in color. Their touches remain brief. Does respectability hold them back? What might pull down any last barriers to their expressions of love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

In the early part of the movie, when Cynara is describing Byron, Byron is standing by the fire place smoking a filter cigarette. As the first cigarette filter was not produced until 1927, it would not be possible for Byron to be smoking a filter cigarette in 1883, the time setting of this movie. See more »

Saved by a beautiful sex scene....
12 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A very short movie indeed. Have to be honest here, but the first 30 minutes is terrible, no continuity or direction at all. Its like, its been put together piece by piece/frame by frame. You can see the love story evolving, but you can see easily that its staged, until...... the love making scene. This saves the movie, and save it, it does. It is beautiful and very well done. Its so well done, its not necessarily acting, cause the kissing especially is full on and you see tongues inside mouths, etc, and kissing each other breasts and full on nudity. Its explicit, but the 2 women are very beautiful too, which is better. If you are into erotic lesbian stories, I truly recommend it, but skip the first 15/20 minutes...maybe...
