beautiful, 17 January 2011
Author: Tatiana from Moscow

so simple and yet so moving. i have not seen a lesbian movie like this in years. in a way it resonates with the story of the two old ladies in "if these walls could talk 2", and i could not help but think about gay couples living together and loving each other no matter what and then so ruthlessly separated right at the time when they need each other so much. i hope there comes a time when we no longer have to face it.

..it is true to life, and that is why for me it felt easy and natural to relate with the two women. they are no perfect, but they are so beautiful loving and caring.

one other thing i loved about this movie - it has something in it that allows to make it a theatre play. it is somehow crying out to be staged, and maybe one day it will.

and Sharon, thank you for amazing acting. superb, as always.
