I suppose I just said depressing because that's how I personally felt after I watched it. You're right though it is more tragic that an actual depressing film. And I agree on Piper Perabo, aside from Imagine Me and You she has done a lot of bad films.

Based on the German movie "Mädchen in Uniform" from 1931. The movie was okay. Nothing special though. I was entertained during the short runtime. But I found the emotions in this movie forced and not all that natural.

Very watchable movie. Nothing special but I was not entertained throughout. This movie features a few lesbian, straight and gay relationships. All were okay, but the only one that I thought had real chemistry didn't seem to have worked out.

     Love My Life (2006/Japan)

Length:96 min.
Video:Widescreen 1.85
Audio:Japanese: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:English

Stars:
Rei Yoshii as Ichiko
Asami Imajuku as Eri
Issei Takahashi as Take-chan

Plot:
Opposites attract in this charming love story from Japan. Ichiko is a happy go lucky girl who falls in love with serious Eri, a fellow student at the university. Ichiko wants to tell the world about their love - beginning with her father. But gay romance is not quite as easy as Ichiko envisions. When she comes out, she learns surprising family secrets. And Eri’s studies soon are keeping them apart.

My Thoughts:
As I am currently in the mood to watch Asian cinema, I thought this would be right moment to rewatch this movie for this thread. This is a nice little romance movie and it deals a little with the fear of gay people living in the Japanese society. It is not a tragic movie but gives a positive outlook for all people involved.

I wouldn't know, I haven't seen that many. But I suspect that more guys watch these movies than woman, for obvious reasons.

You'd be surprised. These movies focus more on the emotional side than the physical side most of the time, something that would bore any guy just looking for "action". It's easier just to turn to porn rather than watch a bunch of lesbian films.

Nice enough movie with beautiful girls. Nicely shot. But overall it's nothing more than two girls bullshitting each other (telling false and true stories about their lives) with some softcore sex scenes thrown in.

The pair hatch a plan to rob Lala's family to fund their dream of living together in Paraguay, but while Lala waits to be reunited with her lover, she is detained in a prison in the outskirts of Buenos Aires for a crime she committed long ago. Desperate to be with her girlfriend, Lala devises a dangerous rescue plan to get her back.

An okay movie. A little clichéd. The young lesbian couple is involved in a crime and one of them is now trying to get to the other who is in prison.
The two leads are natural beauties.
This is my first Argentinian movie.

After a brush with the local police, she finds an unlikely sparring partner in Saffron, a tearaway teen who has been recruited to prepare for boot camp. Just as the pair begin to bond, the true reasons for Alexandra's return begin to unravel, threatening the future for both of them.

My Thoughts:
The story about a woman who gets discharged from the Marines because she is gay and how she is dealing with the aftermath. She also befriends a troubled teen who they want to sent off to boot camp and she is preparing her for it.
A nice enough movie which kept me interesting throughout the runtime.

Stars:
Lisa Ray as Miriam
Sheetal Sheth as Amina

When she meets Miriam, a young traditional wife and mother, their unexpected attraction pushes Miriam to question the rules that bind her. When Amina helps Miriam's sister-in-law to hide from the police, a chain of events is set in motion that changes both women forever.

In a system that divides white from black and women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive?

From overcoming oppression to finding personal freedom, from the hardship of a loveless marriage to the hesistant joy of an unexpected love affair, The World Unseen transports the viewer to a vibrant, colourful world that is universal in its themes.

My Thoughts:
This movie deals mainly with racial prejudices. But it also has a nicely developed lesbian relationship (at least in the end it ends at the start of one). These two women have great chemistry together. These two actresses already did a lesbian themed movie together ("I Can't Think Straight", which I have reviewed before), but this one is a lot better.

During her first days at a mid-west college Jackie meets the gorgeous Catherine Stark, a mysterious teacher with an infamous "lady-killer" reputation. In spite of warnings, Jackie quickly falls for her teacher's seductive charm and the two outsiders begin an intensely passionate relationship. Through the course of the school year the couple's bond grows stronger until Jackie is faced with the chance to audition for a feature film version of her now defunct television show forcing her to choose between her public façade and controversial relationship.
