Ticketing hotline was a buzz on Saturday, I guess even in this age of Internet automation, there's still a need for person to person.
Only saw one film, No End a peep into the life of the pretty lesbians next door, if you lived in Italy.
Giulia (Cristina Serafini) and Chiara (love the playfully chic hairdo) (Irene Ivaldi) are partners ready to embark on the journey of artificial insemination, until Chiara finds a lump in her breast. Or as the subtitle translated - "You have a cancer to your breast".
The film's director, Roberto Cuzzillo focus was not on content or character, it's a film about light and shadow, making coffee, needle point and a "No Ending" crying scene.
At this point, I've seen two lesbian films to one gay film, which makes me curious, do most gay films have explicit sex and most lesbian films refrain from raunch? Of course that's too broad a statement, but it will be something I'll be noting as I go forward into QFest 2009!
Food Footnote: For a film set in Italy, with an emphasis on what's in the background, there is nothing culinary to note.
Rating: Pretty 4th Toe
