Sapphic Delights

I'm watching Sappho - would not recommend it. The acting is kinda stiff and definitely B-grade...but if you want to ogle at pretty people - and watch two pretty women get it on - then be my guest:

Helene: If you are lucky enough to love somebody who cares if it's a boy or a girl?

If it's love, it doesn't matter.

Jenn said...

Yes, if it's love. As the Beatles so poignantly pointed out....all you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Yet the movie didn't seem to be about love so much as lust...and the girl who was supposed to be Sappho - she had this little girl voice - and she had no depth or presence or anything...she spouted poetry and it sounded trite coming from her...

Nessa said...

Well, lust is different, but also quite valid - if no one else is involved to get hurt. I hate it when moves suck the life out of a story.

Jenn said...

Hmmmm....I dunno if the story was supposed to be about eternal verities - or whether it was just a cheap thrill sorta thing - altho I think they went to a lot of trouble for said cheap thrill - anyone want my copy of Sappho?
