Yearning
30 August 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This film perfectly depicted the confusion and desire of two teenage lesbians. The way it begins and flows is so real and subtle. The acting, particularly of the two young girls is really well done. I enjoyed this film and am very glad I stumbled upon it.

With all the talk in political circles about immigration it was very pleasant to see a portrayal of some very good solid loving Mexican families. Films like this are important to expand peoples at times stereotypical views.

The use of music is very effective and pleasurable throughout the film.

It was also not a typical portrayal of young lesbian love. The girls seem to not really understand what is happening to them and the film does a lovely job at keeping their characters devoted friends and not just objects of lust. In fact it keeps you wondering if this love will remain unrequited?
