Storyline

Axun and Maite met at secondary school during a repressive era that never allowed their relationship to go beyond friendship. Later on, their paths led them apart: Axun got married and moved out to the country to live on a farm, while Maite traveled the world, clarified her sexual orientation in her own mind, and now, having had a successful career as a piano teacher, she has returned to San Sebastian to take up her retirement. Fifty years on, Axun and Maite, now both seventy, meet up by chance while visiting patients in hospital. At first, they don't recognize one another, but soon long- suppressed feelings begin to emerge once more with the same intensity, and Axun is aware for the first time of her chance to start something entirely new. Feelings once illicit which, fifty years ago, she was unable and forbidden to identify, force her to reassess her marriage and to embark on a journey of self-knowledge. When Maite invites her to the island of Santa Clara, Axun has to decide whether... Written by Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Two friends, 60 years later
15 October 2012 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

For 80 Days (2010) is a movie from the Basque country in Spain. (The original title, in the Basque language, was 80 Egunean.) The film was written and directed by Jon Garaño and José María Goenaga.

This interesting movie explores lesbian attraction between two older women. Axun (Itziar Aizpuru) and Maite (Mariasun Pagoaga) were friends as children. They shared a "practice kiss," but nothing more. They meet again 60 years later when, by chance, each is visiting a comatose patient in the hospital.

Life has taken them in very different directions. Axun is a traditional wife and mother in a rural community. Maite is an out lesbian, who is a pianist and professor of piano in the city of San Sebastián.

Still, a spark of the old friendship--and romantic attraction--remains. The plot revolves around the expression of that friendship and attraction for the 80 days in which the women are seeing each other at the hospital and elsewhere.

I've seen many international films, but I've never before seen a movie produced in the Basque Country. (The Basque language is not an Indo-European language--it isn't related to Spanish.) Seeing a movie from a different culture was interesting in itself. Happily, the movie was not only different, but it was also excellent.

This is a quiet, thought-provoking film. It's definitely worth seeking out and seeing. We saw it at the Little Theatre as part of the first-rate Image Out--the Rochester LGBT Film & Video Festival.
