Loved this movie. The storyline was great. The acting superb. The sex scenes VERY REALISTIC. I wish more movies like this would be made in English. You can find a lot like it foreign made. Time for the United States to catch up. The love story was convincing. Can't wait to buy it on DVD. Dalles and Jasmine are both very sexy characters. BTW it's not just about sex no matter what the naysayers say.
Accurate Representation of Androgynous Lesbian's Lifestyle (by pipschandra)
As an androgynous lesbian, it is safe to say this was an extremely accurate movie and I wish there were more movies like this. Best lesbian movie I've seen by far. From personal experience this is exactly how androgynous lesbians meet women. Straight women or Bi-curious women are usually attracted to androgynous folk. The timeline of the movie is over one weekend, that's usually how fast these flings start and end. Movie has a cheesy unrealistic ending because a woman never wins in real life - sad truth is that men always win over androgynous folk in real life. Overall, this was an <more>
accurate representation of my lifestyle, which was reassuring and exciting because I've never seen people like me on the big screen have a lead role and win the girl. I'd give it 11 stars because someone like me was finally represented in entertainment in a positive light. 😊 wish more people supported this movie!!
really good movie in my opinion (by otowngrl-38065)
Despite othet poor reviews i actually really enjoyed thus movie. it does have several sex scenes but they are also romantically and realistically done in my opinion, this movie didnt give me porn vibes. i really thought the two main female characters did great acting thaf seemed natural & realistic & thought their chemistry was incredible which in my opinion doesnt happen so often. The characters arenr complexly explored but it is a nice movie that shows a love at first sight kind of thing, i feel sometimes its nice to see movies where everythinf isnt complex or explained in every <more>
detail, gives you a chance to wonder and take it for what it is. In my opinion though it portrayed a lesbian romance, had great acting & chemistry & while it was sexy still came off romantic in my opinion not pornographic, id watch it again for sure.
great independent movie with two future stars (by vegetol-mp)
Nice, simple story, about two girls, who fall in love. What is great about this movie, is the chemistry between Erika Linder and Natalie Krill. Both ladies are absolutely terrific. Especially Erika Linder. She is a model, not a professional actres, but her charisma is undeniable. Btw, the erotic scenes are hot, but intimate. I wish both ladies A list carrer, because they deserve it. This is good little movie and after almost a week, I just can't get it out of my head. And that is a good sign. 9/10
— The acting in this film was super solid, as was the directing. The story, a pretty standard infidelity theme, was unoriginal but superbly executed.— My favorite thing about this movie was the romantic development at the start of the relationship of the two leads. It was really satisfying to feel the hunt and chase in action. It was all super plausible and believable. —- The Toronto setting was beautifully shot. The cinematography was perfect.About the sex scenes:—- Honestly, this movie draws a very blurry line between porn and art. It may be one of the most sexually explicit films I <more>
have ever seen. In fact, it is so explicit, that sometimes it took me out of film by wondering things like:—— Are they really doing it on the set in front of a whole crew? —- Are they really aroused on set? I mean there is full contact with all the erogenous zones —- Was it uncomfortable for the crew to watch?—— etc.The point is, as beautiful and steamy the sex scenes were, they ended up being a distraction to the emotional connection of the film. I mean, there was full on nudity with full-on lesbian sexual action. Everything from masturbation to sex toys was covered in explicit and stunningly beautiful cinematography. Also, I happened to have streamed this film alone, but the experience made me think I would have been far too embarrassed to watch it with anyone else such as a friend, wife, relative, girlfriend, boyfriend. I can't imagine watching this film with another human without strong reactions about comparing one's self or sexual activity to that which was depicted on screen.Still, I loved this film. It felt very sincere. As a giant fan of indie romance films, this film was firing on all cylinders!
"Below Her Mouth" sadly and terribly underrated. (by NeverSaneEver)
This movie, pretty much across the board, is categorized as flat, boring, shallowly and pretentiously acted soft porn. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The two lead female roles And supporting roles in this movie really seem to be being themselves in their parts rather than" scripted acting". This lends a very real but deliberately understated feel to the movie. Contrary to what many reviews concluded, this isn't just some sort of unrealistic lesbian fantasy involving graphic sex scenes. I did find the sex scenes to be relatively unrestrained but I also found them to <more>
be very true to life, deeply touching and realistic -dealistic and honest regarding intimacy and true feelings rather than prurient. I believe what facilitated this to be true is that all the sex scenes were real. I feel the director and all the actors should get the many accolades they deserve for such a subtly but very profoundly written, acted and directed story that left me feeling a mixture of sad, mesmerized, absorbed, convinced and in the end, very uplifted. If you like watching "acted" movies then go to 95% of the movies produced and directed in Hollywood today. If you like unknowns depicting life the way it really unfolds in relationships then this is the movie to see no matter what you think about the graphic sex scenes which are really full of true and honest emotion. If you see it as merely glorified pornography with a hollow plot line to fill the space then you couldn't be more wrong.
I am not knowledgeable enough of the complexity of lesbian relationships to measure the depth in which this film explores there, and the film seems to invite the viewers there. But I find this film quite exceptional for creating such a vigorous attraction between the two woman characters, and for their acting performance giving birth to two totally elaborated and different personalities, whose traces remain marked in your mind after the film ends. The strong sexual scenes in this film with their acting power are they? graphically diffuse the borders between sex and love, seldom seen in much <more>
I initially rated this movie 6.5 but have found in the two days since I can't stop thinking about it so have come back to rewrite my review and up my rating.Some reviewers have trashed the acting but I think Erika does a fine job as the butch "lady-killer" and Natalie is fantastic in the role of the femme, Jasmine. The problem for me was that until they start having sex both the main characters are pretty unlikable, to the point I almost stopped watching. Dallas is a self-serving asshole, and Jasmine appears to be stuck-up and has no qualms about lying at work to get what she <more>
wants. However, once they start having sex they drop their respective facades and have a sweet little affair, with a fair amount of hot, explicit sex. Yes, the plot is thin but that's typical of lesbian fiction.In my earlier review I kind of trashed the writing. I thought they fell short in explaining why Dallas was such an asshole. But again, this isn't based on great literature, and once I got past that annoyance I started to consider other things that weren't explicitly stated but still came through in various scenes. Like the fact that, while Jasmine and Rile have a decent relationship, it's still a lonely existence for Jasmine as he can't quite connect to her playful nature. And in scenes of Dallas when she's alone she's obviously unhappy. And it's truly heartbreaking to watch Jasmine try and return to her straight life. I think Natalie Krill's performance nails it.So yes, I liked the movie. It's not a light and fluffy, feel good movie like "Imagine Me & You." Instead, its a simple story told fairly well.
Beautiful and unexpected lesbian love story (by davidweimer)
A beautiful movie. Erotism progressively leaves space for true passion to emerge while contradictory feelings drive the plot. The actresses and actor deliver truly amazing, award-deserving performances. Shows that lesbian love can be at least as beautiful as any other, if not more. Makes us look at things differently.
