Synopsis

  • Die 18-jährige Asía liegt im Krankenhaus. An ihrer Seite die besorgte Mutter und der liebevolle Freund. Doch der konventionelle Schein trügt. Rückblenden erzählen von Asías Leben vor dem Unfall: Ihre Freundinnen genießen das neue Leben als Studentinnen in vollen Zügen shoppen, trinken, lästern, knutschen. Asía findet das alles recht nett. Wie auch ihren neuen Freund, Nathaniel. Erst als die unverfrorene, kunstbegabte Eloïse in ihr Leben tritt, begreift Asía, was ihr bisher gefehlt hat: Kunst, Schönheit, verrückte Ideen, tiefschürfende Gespräche und schließlich Leidenschaft! Malerisch inszeniert, mit hinreißenden Hauptdarstellerinnen und voll erotischer Spannung schildert dieses feinfühlige katalanische Filmjuwel die Geschichte einer ersten Liebe in einer perfekten Balance zwischen Romantik und Kompromisslosigkeit.

    The 24th BFI London L&G Film Festival website states: A sensuous and ethereal story of two young women falling in love for the first time. Young, beautiful Àsia lies in a coma, her mother and boyfriend keeping constant vigil by her side. In flashback we see what led up to her accident, her life studying architecture at university, the somewhat overbearing relationship she has with her mother and her passionless relationship with Nathaniel. Àsia seems unhappy and unsure in the world until she meets the mysterious and exotic Eloïse, an art student who asks Àsia to model for her. Eloïse is openly gay and unapologetically different from anyone else she knows, and despite her anxiety about falling in love with another woman, Àsia can't help but respond to Eloïse. Opening up a new world of feelings and possibilities the two young women fall in love, and Àsia is faced with choosing between her disapproving mother or following her heart. A sensuous and beautifully made film that reminds us love can conquer all.
