European take on a love story between two women
9 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

bought this movie after seeing the intriguing cover shot and was quite pleased with the outcome after viewing it. story of two very different women from social classes who have a chance encounter at a friend's birthday party. Rafaela Anderson who plays the dancer/instructor is immediately drawn to the quiet and rather introverted character played by Helene fillieres. Helene starts taking dance lessons at Rafaela's studio and the two start spending time together which soon reveals a strong physical attraction. Helene is married and has a young son which complicates the situation but despite this she continues seeing Rafaela and before one knows it the two embark on an affair. what is striking to me is the androgynous look and appeal of Helene's character who looks completely different in every angle shot or close-up. she is just stunning to gaze upon. the love scenes aren't overly explicit though i did find the sound of the wind chimes in the background a bit annoying during the scenes. there was good chemistry between the two leads which is vital to a love story and the emotions that Rafaela conveys when Helene suggests they spend time apart. difficult choices are made but the characters stay true to themselves and their heart.
