Girl meets girl, etc.
9 November 2010 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Eloïse's Lover, originally entitled Eloïse (2009) was directed by Jesús Garay. It is listed as a film in Spanish, but it's actually in Catalan, the language of the region that includes Barcelona.

This movie is, unfortunately, a pretty stereotypic lesbian love story. A young college student is more or less engaged to a fine young man, but she's clearly not in love with him. She meets an intriguing and beautiful lesbian woman, and the rest of the film is fairly predictable. We know from the outset that the young student is in the hospital in a coma, but we don't know whether or not she will recover. That's the biggest suspense of the plot.

Still, the movie has its good points. Both Diana Gómez as Àsia (the young student) and Ariadna Cabrol as Eloïse (the out lesbian) are very beautiful. It was interesting to get multiple shots of the university in Barcelona, and it's rare to find a film in Catalan in Upstate New York.

In my opinion, this isn't a film that you must see, but it's worth watching if it's readily available. It will work well on DVD, if that's an option. We saw it at Rochester's Little Theatre, as part of the wonderful ImageOut:The Rochester Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
