Jay Weissberg Variety True passion is absent, and even the extras appear unsure of themselves. Feb 21, 2019 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian The film is idealistically conceived in setting out to retell a story that had been erased from the history of sexuality. The energy and flair was, however, missing. Rated: 2/5 Feb 14, 2019 Full Review Clarence Tsui Hollywood Reporter Reworks an early 20th century story into a plodding, protracted melodrama where provincial folk speak, behave and act like their 21st century counterparts. Feb 14, 2019 Full Review Marya E. Gates Cool People Have Feelings, Too. (Substack) A beautiful, lyrical, bittersweet film about two elders of the queer community who should be remembered for their bravery. Feb 12, 2024 Full Review Ben Turner The Pink Lens It looks stunning, but the boring script doesn't lend itself to a great Romance movie. Rated: 2/5 Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Sofía Alvarez Salas Cinencuentro Actresses Greta Fernández (Marcela) and Natalia de Molina (Elisa) shine in these roles.

chill m8 it could be so well if only the director didn't add all those weird bed scenes. an octopus, really? other than that the movie was fine Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review PridePosterStudios Reviewing retrospectively…why do my notes say octopus sex 😶 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review Carmen V From the start, I knew this movie would have an impact on me. I cried many times throughout this movie, the cinematography is one of my favorite things about this movie. I went through all the emotions while watching this movie from happiness, from butterflies in my stomach, & anger. Times are very much different today but also not. same sex marriage may be legal in some parts of the world now but in some parts you are punished for being who you are, for simply loving. This film will remain in a special place in my heart always. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
