fun foreign film - a study of relationships
When Eva's car breaks down, she is stranded at a seaside resort, where she meets Liz. Liz and her lesbian friends are having a get-away at the beach, and Eva is the straight, married outsider. And of course, being gay is still a pretty big deal in Venezuela. It starts out as a light-hearted look at friendships, romance, and quick flings. It quickly takes a more serious turn, as one of the ladies in the group has a secret, and doesn't want the others to know. Nothing is easy in life. BEAUTIFUL scenery. Excellent choices of music throughout. There's a confusing part about halfway through the film, which is partially explained towards the end, but they leave a lot to viewer interpretation. I see the original version ran 100 minutes, but the netflix version is only 92. Wonder what was cut out; were there things in the missing eight minutes that would have explained a couple things for us? Mostly a great story. Could easily have been someone's personal experience. Directed by Fina Torres. Written by Torres and Jane Chambers. I tried to go to the "official website", but sadly the link is no longer working.
