A painter ('the artist') and a lounge-room singer ('the girl') continue a passionate lesbian love affair. 'The girl' is actually a high-class prostitute whose pimp ('the man') is putting the pressure on both women to end the relationship. Words like 'prostitute' and 'pimp' seem too harsh for the sexy-smooth atmosphere of this fascinating look at obsessive love. Written by k wedgwood

Toronto 2000 Wrap-Up

9/9 7:00 pm THE GIRL (**1/2)

Sexy but thin lesbian love story. Male characters are silent which is very effective. The decidedly feminine pace is refreshingly unsettling. On hand for the Q & A after this world premiere were director Sande Zeig, producer Dolly Hall, writer Monique Wittig and actress Agathe de la Boulaye who told an amazing story about how a couple of drunken yahoos became completely lost when her butch yet slightly fem character emerged from her trailer. Agathe's performance was remarkably patient which was a nice change from the obsession usually depicted in these kinds of stories.
