Review

Open - an absolutely fantastic film...fantastically written and directed...it packed a whollop of a punch in a twelve minute period of time...this is quality...these twelve minutes were awesome. --The G Spod

Like a mini made for your living room, Alluvial Filmworks delivers a diverse quintet of lesbian short films with Girl's View. This thoughtful collection runs the gamut of lesbian life, including angst teen same-sex love, mother and daughter jealousy, sexy polyamory, heart-rending unrequited love and finding the right high school niche. A handful of stories cherrypicked from the past decade, Girl's View is both charming and poignant.

In Barbara Ryerson s Open Studio, Rose, a former artist and mother of a lesbian daughter falls apart when she her daughter s risking her own successful art career to have a baby. In this tale, lesbianism takes a back shelf to the primary issues of motherhood and career. Having sidelined her own career to raise her daughter, Rose spins out of control until she sublimates her frustration into her art after decades of passing over her brush in favor of child-rearing.

High school crushes Jani and Gabbi experience the first rush of love as well as its crushing effects in Fei-Fei Wang s Unspoken. Shunning boys to smoke weed, hold hands and make in the back of an abandoned old sedan amidst a junkyard, the two girls are wildly in love. But like so many budding lesbian romances, one of the girls succumbs to high school and hormonal pressures, tearing the other one s heart in two. At times gritty and at others capturing the pure bubble-gum excitement of young love. This short gem transports the viewer back to those thrilling days of discovery and heartache.

Human beings aren t made for monogamy. Or are they? Is the central question addressed in Teale Failla s humorous look at polyamory in Open. This light-hearted exploration into open relationships asks more questions than it answers and rightly so. When Gabby begins to prefer poet and performance artist Janet over her long-term and soon to be live-in girlfriend, it becomes a matter of where to draw lines and who has the power to do the drawing. Set in NYC s Greenwich Village, Failla s film captures a real New York sensibility and the certainly one of the most pressing issues of the time.

Of all the is the norm and heterosexual is the marginalized sexual proclivity films and there are a few Tyrell Shaffner s Different, is the grittiest of all. While students at Liberty High search frantically for same-sex Homecoming dates, Justin realizes he s in love with his cute, blonde Biology partner, a girl, of all things. Emily Stiles, a stand-out in the Eating Out movies, plays Joanne, the object of Justin s affection. While Justin manages to shake up her world, Joanne sticks with her Homecoming date Amy. Different delivers a realistic slice of flipped social mores.

Blossoming love between two female students in a convent school is the stuff that naughty dreams are made of, but Isabella v. Chan s Sugared Peas, dares to reveal the flip side of fate. Best friends Grace and Nicole carry lean on each other throughout school until repression comes to a head during an allgirl production of the King Arthur tale at school. Years later, a chance meeting between the two women uncovers lost love and lingering heartbreak. --LesbiaNation.com

Different - "A great little subverse film" --Michael Lehmann, Director of "Heathers"

Product Description

Alluvial Filmworks present Girls' View, a collection of five lesbian-themed short films.

Open Studio - Rose gave up on her artistic career 30 years ago when she became pregnant. Now, after a life devoted to making sure her lesbian daughter found the success she wanted for herself, her daughter announces she's pregnant. The announcement unearths a rage in Rose and awakens her from her compromised life. It also ignites Rose's journey to reclaim her artistic voice and find her forgotten soul.

Unspoken - Unspoken is a compelling coming of age story: a tale of desire, lust and betrayal. Two sixteen-year-old girls share a friendship and affection that sparks jealousy and turns heads. But when boys enter into the picture, the dynamics shift. The illusions shatter as sex, drugs and infidelity run rampant in a junkyard.

Open - Modern ideas of monogamy are examined through reversed, intersecting timelines in this hilarious and sexy film. A well-intentioned agreement into an open relationship leads a seemingly happy, committed, twenty-something urban couple into a complex love triangle. Betrayal, bingo and sex toys perfect together!

Different - Joanne and Justin have a secret: They're straight. In the parallel universe of Liberty High School, gay and lesbian is the norm and homecoming is only days away. Starring Emily Stiles (Eating Out, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds) and Ben Hogestyn (The Bold and the Beautiful, First openly gay character on General Hospital).

Sugared Peas - The whirlwind emotions of youthful love and coming out are explored in this evocatively filmed short. Two unrequited lovers from a convent school have a fateful meeting many years later. This heartbreaking, touchingly bittersweet film examines the fears and frustrations of attempting to establish a first same-sex relationship.

I wasn't really expecting much because so many LGBT films are so low budget and usually not that good. But my girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised. It's several short films. The first was the best, about a high school experience I think almost every gay girl goes through. The second was my least favorite. But the rest were all pretty good. Decent quality. Good story lines and over-all enjoyable. A lot of lesbians will be able to relate to some of these stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars a short film surprise July 11, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Five shorts; all with their own surprises. Not always 'happy ending's, not always the greatest acting, yet they all held their own. And all for different reasons. Gay/lesbian films are always a toss up; you never know if you'll feel good for watching it. This was a smart, sexy, sometimes sad, selection. I don't regret watching it!

1.0 out of 5 stars There's nothing funny about bad film making March 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Wow. I heard some positvie things about this collection of short films, but was shocked to find it to be scattered and poorly made. Sparing the first and last films, the collection was actually hard to watch. I have no idea how it won any awards.

"Open" is actually possibly the worst short film I have ever witnessed. And I have seen short films made on a zero budget by friends. The dialogue was trite and the acting horrible. There was a lot of "humorous" moments the fell short of even being tolerable. Like a lesbian pretending to hit on a chair? That is...what? funny? Or two girls doing exaggerated impressions of female porn stars that just go on and on. Is that supposed to be racy? Just the worst piece of film I have ever sat through. If only it had been longer than ten minutes I would have turned it off.
"Sugared Peas" makes me shudder to even think about. So obvious and contrived, it makes me wonder how anybody ever considered actually putting it out for release on this collection.
"Open Studio" is about a lady trying to reclaim her long lost artistic ability. It has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with lesbians. (I think her daughter might be a lesbian.) Also, the film is very poorly written and the overly dramatic acting just made it obvious that this was an amatuer work.
The first film, "Unspoken", is actually really well shot and professional. Decent acting and dialogue also contributes to it being a well made film. Only problem is that it has a beginning and a middle but no ending. It was like watching a part of a movie and then having someone turn the tv off. I know it's a short, but short films are still supposed to tell a story (last time I checked) and not just give you a snippet of someone's life.
The last film, "Different" was the only one I actually enjoyed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother May 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
These stories were very weak at best. I did however like the last one which was a way to deal with homosexuality on a reverse angle. Very clever idea.

This is one of the worst things I've ever wasted my time and money on. I'm sorry I sacrificed an hour of my life on this rubbish. Someone needs to make a lesbian movie that actually does us some justice.

2.0 out of 5 stars low budget, very high school one act May 16, 2011
By tbery
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Most of the short films had no clear begining middle or end. The stories were okay but it was hard to form an opinion on something so short. I really thought since I was paying for this that it would be of a higher quality than the webseries girl/girl scene which is free. Although I do like the last short film in this movie.
