What some people think about this movie...

I saw this movie in Italy some years ago and it remains one of the most impressive movies about lesbian love I've ever seen. I was fashinated especially by its unreal, almost oneiric athmosphere. And I think it's a great sample of the love/indipendence conflict in a relationship between women.
