What are your top 5 ARTY lesbian films? Mine are:
Between Summer and Autumn (film that tries to give answer to what love is and presents it with believable lesbian love story with happy ending using beautiful cinematography, attention to detail, very good actresses and well balanced combination of dialogue, emotion and action. Homosexual love is presented in believable way: for the main character being lesbian is natural, although she asks herself what love is, while the other main character goes "to some length" before admitting she is not only attracted to women, she is attracted and loves this particular woman). Summer of Sommeglie (for a well planned and thought actions and emotions behind every scene; great presentation of the nature and brilliant acting of both actresses and of course great presentation of lesbian sensuality and sexuality).
Aimee & Jaguar (for obvious reasons this is a great love story very well presented and acted; the main actress portrays beautifully the main character).
Kiss me (despite a bit of a cliche story the acting is very believable and attraction, sensuality and sexuality comes through as the strongest part of the film).
Carol (for excellent work of both actresses, beautiful photography and of course for a happy ending).
