I loved it ! Maybe because I'm jewish and fascinated by passion stories. Maybe because I didn't believe that video photography can can look so good when blowed up to 35 m"m(Used to be a film fanatic). And because I was looking for new language. In the eighties the gay cinema of Jarman, Fassbinder and all the other dudes had it's own style and rythem. It had "exposed" and fragile characters whom u could not meet in the mainstream heterosexual cinema. Now years had passed and the queer cinema turned to be straight. In it's story telling, visuality and the thing u get that stays with u when u go home. Saved by the Belles opened the good old door to queer cinema. It's truely a festivals' film, and in a wicked way it's also a film that can speak to almost any viewer (maybe not my parents) from the extasy loaded clubby to the the film student who's working on his m.a.
It'S hot ! sexy ! funny ! and reminds u how great it is to feel proud !
