The combination becomes the catalyst for residents who must now face or deny their own realities in this outrageous comedy with a queer little twist.

In spite of Megan’s protests, her parents send her packing to a homosexual rehabilitation camp, “True Directions.” There, Megan works hard at becoming straight, until she gets to know Graham (Clea Duvall, Girl Interrupted).

Fried Green Tomatoes: Collector's Edition (1991) Fried Green Tomatoes: Collector’s Edition (1991)

A chance encounter in a nursing home between dowdy housewife Evelyn Couch (Bates) and spry octogenarian Ninny Threadgoode (Tardy) leads to an unexpected friendship. Ninny tells Evelyn an absorbing story of two women who lived half a century ago in the town of Whistle Stop: the fiercely independent Idgie (Mary Stuart Masterson) and the gentle Ruth (Mary Louise Parker). Idgie stands up to the Klan, Ruth’s abusive husband and a charge of murder in a time when a woman’s place was considered the kitchen. Idgie’s courage in the face of adversity inspires Evelyn to take a look at her own life and make drastic changes, often with hilarious results.

It’s the story of a friendship and love that defied all obstacles, a devotion that couldn’t be broken and a courage unlike any other. It’s the story of a simpler time, and the strength of the human spirit that still exists today. 130 mins.

Lianna Lianna (1983)

Linda Griffiths plays Lianna, the naive young wife of a professor bored with her life and angered at her husband’s blatant sexual indiscretions. She has an affair with another woman, Ruth (Jane Halleran), and when her affair becomes common knowledge, she finds herself shunned by both her friends and family. Released shortly after a handful of films touching upon homosexual relationships (MAKING LOVE, PERSONAL BEST), LIANNA is a realistic depiction of a lesbian relationship that does not succumb to typical Hollywood formulas. Director John Sayles traces the consequences of divorce and the constrictions of women’s possibilities with an unsentimental eye, showing that freedom often comes with a heavy price. Although many people were skeptical about a man helming a film about lesbians, Sayles does an admirable job creating a movie that no studio wanted to touch, on a budget that very few directors could live within.

Love and sex were not scheduled into her timetable, but at 16, Jeanette decides to leave the church, her home and her family, for the young woman she loves.

Funny and tender, Oranges is a document of the wilder side of religious enthusiasm, and an exploration of the power of love.

I've Heard The Mermaids Singing I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing (1987, 81 min)

The simplest things often defy description—as does the world according to Polly, the quirky center of Patricia Rozema’s frequently hysterical and often touching Canadian film, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing. Gauche, plain, trusting, na”ve, bumbling, but never pathetic, Polly (Sheila McCarthy) appears inept at everything except capturing her own particular vision in still photographs. Nursing a walloping crush on her new employer, Gabrielle, a suave and sophisticated art dealer, Polly struggles with her wildly vacillating self-confidence and daydreams (in cool and cuttingly funny black-and-white sequences) about blossoming into an urbane and sophisticated soul. Her discovery that Gabrielle might not be the artistic genius she’d believed her to be leads to an unexpected twist and spin on the real meaning of creativity. An original gem with wonderful performances.

The Killing of Sister George The Killing of Sister George (1968, 138 min)

Late ‘60s lesbian melodrama has good intentions, but feels both dated and prurient. Beryl Reid is excellent as a boisterous, ageing television actress – and Susannah York looks awfully good in a blue nightie – but emotionally, this is pretty dusty stuff.

Love Story Love Story – A videotape by Catrine Clay (1997) Kan lånes på biblioteket
Dokumentar – 60 min.
In 1942 Berlin, LiIly Wurst was a model Aryan hausfrau with a picture of the FŸhrer on the wall, a husband in the army, and a German motherhood medal for bearing four sons. With this distinction came mother’s helper Ulla Schaaf, who unbeknownst to Lilly was deeply involved with the Jewish underground. When Lilly boasted that she could “smell a Jew”, Ulla tested her by introducing her to Felice Schraderheim, aka Felice Schrader, a 20 year old Jewish woman living in hiding. The result of that meeting is an unusual love story whose arc is followed through recollections, documents, and archival footage in this beautifully made documentary.As Ulla Schaaf and others in the Jewish underground describe living in constant fear of denunciation, they recall how Felice risked her life to smuggle false papers. In intimate interviews, Lilly tells how their relationship deepened until Felice revealed to her the secret of her Judaism. Sharing a home, wedding vows, and the care of Lilly’s children, in 1944 Felice chose to stay in Berlin with Lilly rather than flee to neutral Switzerland. Later that year she was arrested by the Gestapo, never to return.

Now 82, Lilly shares her remaining photos and love letters to recall the great love of her life. As survivors from the underground recall acts of everyday courage, Love Story powerfully depicts ordinary people’s resistance to injustice. Skillful, haunting, and elegiac, Love Story is a potent meditation on the healing and transformative power of love and compassion in the face of adversity. Produced for the BBC.

Lilly Wust and Felice Schragenheim–the real-life “Aimée” and “Jaguar”

Aimee & Jaguar

Aimee & Jaguar

Berlin 1997. An estate agent and clients are looking around a slightly delapidated flat. An old lady is sitting next to her belongings, waiting to go into an old people’s home. Over half a century ago, in the middle of the second world war, this flat was a meeting point for young people and a hideout for outsiders.

Lilly Wust (Juliane Köhler) leads a conventional life, not suspecting that she will soon be the central figure in extraordinary events. In 1943 she is in her late twenties, has four children, and is a good housewife, although she frequently has lovers. Her husband Günther (Detlev Buck), a soldier on active duty, also has affairs. The couple lives a bourgeois life, but not repressed, as far as sex is concerned. At a concert, Lilly meets a young woman in passing who will turn her life upside down.

At first she knows nothing about Felice Schragenheim (Maria Schrader), neither that she is friends with Lilly’s maid, Ilse, nor that she is Jewish and living in the underground. There is no particular reason why the brief encounter between the two women should have consequences, since both women are preoccupied with their own survival. Every night there are bombing raids over Berlin, Lilly has to care for her children, and Felice is constantly in danger of being arrested by the Gestapo. Fate brings the two women together a second time, and Lilly feels that she is the object of Felice’s desires. She is attracted and fascinated, but also confused.

Felice is completely different from all the women Lilly has met so far in her life. She is more self-confident, energetic and intelligent. Felice’s women friends also have these qualities, which bewilder Lilly. One day Felice embraces Lilly and kisses her on the mouth in a way Lilly has never experienced before. She is shocked, slaps Felice, and turns away from her; and yet she feels that something has begun from which she will not be able to escape.

A passionate love affair begins amidst the bombing raids and the threat of persecution. The two women write letters and poems to one another almost every day. They call one another Aimée (Lilly) and Jaguar (Felice). But Lilly does not really know much about this woman Felice, who disappears for days on end without satisfactory explanation. Eventually, Lilly is overcome by jealousy and Felice is forced to admit that she is Jewish. Felice, who is working for a Nazi newspaper under a false name and delivering information to a resistance group, knows how dangerous this admission could be, since Lilly’s husband is clearly a Nazi and there is a bust of Hitler in Lilly’s flat. But Lilly surpasses herself; she lets Felice move into her flat and divorces her husband. The two women make a pact of love and marriage. They try to block out the dreadful reality of war and persecution, but it catches up with them. One hot day in August 1944, after an outing to the banks of the Havel where they swam, played around and photographed one another, the Gestapo is waiting in Lilly’s flat…

Chasing Amy Image

Chasing AmyThis movie is part of the “New Jersey Trilogy” by Kevin Smith. Be forewarned, Kevin Smith’s writing and the actors he casts in his movies are not for everyone. This film explores the insecurities all people have whether gay or straight. The two lead characters are comic book writers, one straight male and one lesbian, who end up in a relationship together. Many issues about relationships, sexual orientation, and how our pasts impact our present are explored. What I liked about the movie when I first saw it was Amy’s honest dialogue about her sexuality. How do you explain why and how you are a lesbian to someone who is not? Can you be attracted to a man if you identify as a lesbian? I am not sure I am a Kevin Smith fan, though I am glad I have watched his movies. Actually, I am NOT a Ben Affleck fan and he has the lead male role in Chasing Amy. The fact that Joey Lauren Adams is easy on the eyes and gives a solid performance in the movie helped deflect my distaste for Ben. This is a movie that should be able to spark good dialogue with your date or partner, but certainly not a movie you are going to watch for lesbian sex scenes. (G)

 

"The Hunger" logo

Okay, this might not be the best vampire story out there, but the lesbian love scene between Sarandon and Deneuve is worth watching this movie.

Anne Trister

Anne Trister (1986)

Anne Trister is a small Quebec film, directed by Leà Pool (Movements of Desire) in 1986. This is a film of somewhat less-than-profound aims, but interesting in a way due to its simple charms.

Anne is a artist who has just suffered from the death of her father, and to get away from her former life for awhile, she leaves her Switzerland home, and her recording engineer boyfriend, and moves to Quebec. While there, she also runs into an old friend of her father`s, who gives her a decent place to stay at a neighbour`s house, and also gives her an abandoned building to work on her art.

The woman she stays with is Alix, a child psychiatrist. The two get along smashingly, but a peculiar thing begins to happen. Anne clearly is falling in love with Alix. It’s peculiar because the script doesn`t make a big show out of it. This is not one of those painfully self-conscious stories of people “coming out of the closet”, and saying how great it is to be gay, and other such nonsense, but, rather, it just simply happens. There is a nice scene showing how Alix still attempts a sense of decorum even after Anne goes so boldly as to kiss her before she leaves.

She and shy sidekick Jet Girl steal their respective W&P military vehicles and wreak havoc on W&P troops and outposts, all the while being pursued by the evil CEO, Kesslee. The entire movie is filled with good one-liners and miscellanous cool gadgets and stuff. Also, the soundtrack fits nicely with the scenes. These things are difficult to summarize, so go see the movie.
