Let me suggest that the inept Amazon review not only misses the point of the film, they can't even get the names of the characters correct. Further, they omit the fact that the film garnered several awards and made Nicole Conn one of the top 10 most admired and powerful lesbians in the business. If you are going to write a review of a film, one should get their facts in order. Also, Trisha Todd starred in the film, but Ms Conn wrote, produced and directed it. Again, incorrect facts . Maybe the reviewer for Amazon should take advantage of their tuition assistance and re-educate themselves in another line of work! Just saying.......

Still fun to watch after all these years.

The average were around 3.5, which I would say is about right. Both the good reviews and the critical ones were true. This movie, works especially well, when there is either music or silence. I thought that the two actresses did a good job of presenting the conflict, the curiosity and the attraction between them.

Where the movie failed miserably was the dialogue. It was trite, pretentious and ponderous-except for the hugging scene.

The actress who played Maggie is funny and great at puncturing pretension-and there is a lot in this movie, which is more of a "mood piece". In that way, it resembles Debussy' s "Claire de Lune".

This is a overly analyzed treatise on why someone is a lesbian under the guise of a writer's retreat. None of the characters were believable and it droned and dragged on while the one supposedly straight character jumped in bed with anything that came close to her. I'd heard about this movie years back and always wanted to see it and now I wish I hadn't. It's horrible.

Lost Interest Somewhere Between Cliches and Crap!

Some of the worst acting ever! Only k.d. lang’s acting in Salmonberries was worse than this entire ensemble’s. If you want some romance, watch Desert Hearts. If you want a good story performed by truly great actors, rent Tell It to the Bees. But if you want lousy acting, gratuitous sex scenes, and a predictable story...this is the movie for you. The only reason it got 3 stars from me was due to the beautiful scenery along the Oregon coast. Skip the movie, take a trip to Oregon instead!

I recently purchased this film and was not so interested at first. I have watched it multiple times since and have come to revise my first impression. The difference of the two lead characters are in step of actual life experiences. Opposites do attract :). It also made me aware of how much work goes in to creating, developing, producing, and directing a film such as this or any film. I will continue to enjoy this film in the future.

i Think every new baby lesbian should watch this movie, it takes a lot of the guess work out of explaining a lot of different parts of lesbianism..
Bottom line, still a good movie, still applicable to people today. in 2020

Well worth watching

I found this movie most interesting. Very different approach to a developing love between these two women. How Claire manages to keep up with Noel and doing her best to break down the barrier between them. Must listen to the conversations. The movie is well done, not really graphic until the very end. Both Trisha and Karen did a great job. Kudos to both. Those who enjoyed this story will enjoy Elena Undone. Both are from Nichole Conn.
