The 'other' love story is a journey of 2 young girls who fall in love and they act on it without thinking twice There is a lot of stigma associated with such a relationship, but inside the heart, only love endures.
this movie was made in 1986, when argentina had but just returned to democracy. as such, it is a very interesting snapshot of what the social imaginary was like in argentina in those years. the movie drew in large audiences and many a married person, after seeing this movie, questioned his/her choices and the forces that had impinged on those choices. as a cinematographic product, the movie is average: it was the director's first (and sadly also his last) movie and it shows at times. as a social product, this movie offers an excellent opportunity to understand argentina's contradictions and the way the glttbq community was beginning to resurface after years of persecution. today buenos aires is a premium destination for glttbq travelers -- there are civil union laws, international gay hotels, a myriad of gay organizations, etc. it is amazing -- or perhaps NOT so very amazing considering this city's paradoxical nature -- that this movie was made only 20 years ago. i recommend it for its historical value and its honest naïveté.
