Quotes

Edith Tree: [to Ted] If you knew your aunt at all. If you knew about all the marvelous things that she did, and how good she was, and funny. And tender. And brave. And smart. If you knew how hard she worked just to find a little peace in this life. If you knew her at all, then you'd know what she wanted. And this wasn't that. Oh my dear, it certainly wasn't that.

Unequal
25 June 2000 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

I see this movie as an attempt to help conservative people to see gay life (male or female) as something natural, or normal (which I think is very OK). The three segments represents three steps for that recognition : 1961 : Hide it! 1972 : It is shown as some kind of feminist fashion and shows intolerance between the lesbians. 2000 : acceptance. The problem is that the three segments are very unequal. We all accept that the first part is very moving, with a very very fine performance from the great Vanessa Redgrave. The second part is O.K. But the third is very weak. Despite these little defaults, this is a very fine movie, with honorable good intentions. I say bravo to everyone involved in it and also say bravo to every viewer who accepts it. But for a little superior movies on the same subject, I suggest two Canadian films : When the night is falling, and Revoir Julie. I wonder what would be the reaction if there was a similar film with men... You know the story : lesbians are more cute...
