I don’t get the kinda negative reception for this short film. Sure it took its time to get there but these days it seems no one appreciates patience! And it’s not like we did not get anything until the very last minute! There were a lot of signs from the get go that would be appreciated by those used to subtext!
Seriously, I was surprised that no one seemed to pick up on the vibes between our girls in that world! They were inseparable! If they were not wearing the same clothes, they had their hair done the same way, the exact same way! In some cases it was both their clothes and hair done in the exact same way!
They walked almost shoulder to shoulder, ate the exact same food, god, I think even their lockers where next to each other! I can excuse the girls themselves for not seeing the signs between them sooner but not the other people! So when the guys and their friends caught the two making out at the party and shouted ‘LESBIANS’ I was like, took you long enough you oblivious fools!
And it was not just the aesthetics, there were moments where our to girls would get lost in one another, in the usual scenes – like the make-up scene, or the first step of getting laid – making eye contact! Sure this whole thing would have been majorly improved if the creators did what everyone was expecting, like, instead of seducing the guy, the girls actually ended up seducing themselves. Or had a practice session in kissing and following what the instructions were telling us about sticking tongues in the other’s mouth or kissing other parts of the body other than the mouth or something.
But really, how clichéd would that have been? There would have been substance but would have lacked finesse and where is the fun in that? We have seen it all and if you can think of it then why make it? You know it already so why not be given something you aren’t expecting?
Anyway, I loved the build up and that made the payoff that much more glorious! Those kisses were wonderful and I know they meant more to the girls because they got to have them at that time. If they had already kissed before the party then there would have been less impact! In fact I am sure they would have gone farther with the guys because the writers had an excuse to take them that far then.
But other than the yuri, the film really looked great, professional even! Hell, there is even a soundtrack for it, something that I have never seen before! I will link the soundtrack video too after the caps.
Really, I am not saying the film as it is missed anything but I wish it was a full feature film! I think there is potential there and I kind of want some drama between the girls because of the crush one has on that guy! Or both being jealous of the other because of the guys.
But, time was short and we got the best that we could have gotten in the given time so I have no regrets!
Anyway, jump over for caps and vids and I’ll be seeing ya
