This sensitive but light-hearted study of complicated intimacy, shot in natural light and on grainy stock, immerses you in the world of dancer Elena and sign language interpreter Dovydas.
When Elena and Dovydas meet, they’re immediately drawn to each other and quickly begin a romance. But Elena is a very sensual, physical person, and Dovydas is not. Struggling to find common ground in their approaches to sex, they realise they will have to experiment to try and create something new that works for them both.With tangible chemistry between the two protagonists, despite their disparate sexualities, this eloquent love story is touching, tender and thoughtful.
“A supremely confident piece of filmmaking that negotiates the tricky terrain of non-typical sexualities.”
