This story follows Eva, a traveler who experiences some car trouble and ends up spending some time with a group of women in a hotel outside of town. These women gladly accept Eva into their home and help her to feel at home. Quickly Eva discovers the secret that unifies these seven interesting women she's met. As relationships are being formed, an even deeper relationship forms between Eva and Liz. As they go on different adventures, Liz's secret that she's kept from everyone is revealed and it takes a toll on everyone involved. . It is worthy to note that there are not many male characters in this film, which leaves room for these women to show their own strengths, capabilities and who they truly are as vibrant women living their lives.Written by
One minute can be a lifetime, if you live it right.
The Venezuelan film Liz en Septiembre was shown in the U.S. with the title Liz in September (2014). It was written and directed by Fina Torres.
The film stars Patricia Velasquez as Liz--a lesbian supermodel who comes to a beach resort to celebrate her birthday. All of her friends, as well as the proprietor of the hotel, are lesbians.
By happenstance, a straight woman arrives at the hotel, and becomes the object of attention from everyone. Liz bets that she can seduce the outsider within a short time, and then sets about to do just that. As you might expect, there are problems ahead for Liz and the straight woman. The problems surface slowly--they are brought to our attention little by little.
The setting of the movie is so beautiful--as are all the actors--that the tragic moments of the film are hard to accept. The straight/lesbian situation isn't the problem. However, problems are there, and this makes the film a tragicomedy.
This is a powerful and beautiful movie. I highly recommend it. We saw it on the large screen as part of ImageOut, the excellent Rochester LGBTQ Film Festival. It won't work as well on a small screen, because some of the tropical beauty will be lost. Still, it's a great movie, and I suggest that you see it in any format that's available.
