Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) announces her engagement to boyfriend Tim (Joakim Natterqvist) at her father's 60th Birthday Party. Her father Lasse (Krister Henriksson) has just asked his partner Elizabeth (Lena Endre) to marry him. When Mia meets Elizabeth's fun-loving daughter Frida (Liv Mjones), she is initially wary. Reluctantly, she agrees to a weekend getaway on the island of Fyn with Frida and Elizabeth. Forced to share a bedroom with Frida, Mia finds herself fascinated by the other woman's free-spirited enjoyment of life. While out walking in the woods, Mia boldly kisses Frida leading to an amorous embrace. Frida is ready and willing to reciprocate and the women soon feverishly make love for the first time.

The weekend over, Mia must return to Stockholm and her life with Tim and Frida to her partner Elin. Both women find it hard to put the intimacy they shared behind them. Escaping into the windswept Swedish countryside, the women shed their inhibitions once more and in the process fall deeply in love. Their lovemaking scenes show the playfulness and urgency of a new love affair. The intensity of their emotions however, soon overpowers both women and they question whether they really can return to their old lives.

Alexandra-Therese Keining's beautifully directed lovemaking scenes sizzle on screen, some with no music at all, just the delightful sounds of two women ardently making love. The beautiful Swedish coast and countryside makes a perfect backdrop for this sensitive portrayal of undeniable attraction and love as it collides with life and family expectations.

I was captivated by the intensity and chemistry between the two female leads in this film. Kiss Me is the best lesbian film I've seen since Imagine Me & You. And unlike Imagine Me & You, but has four amazing lovemaking scenes, which set my heart on fire, and were tenderly, sensually and realistically done.

While I didn't like that the two women were cheating on their partners, I had to appreciate the romance, great acting of the two female leads, the fantastic love scenes, and Swedish countryside in this film. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves love, especially between two women.

"Kiss Me" is a critically acclaimed film about lesbian love, and, once you watch it, you'll understand why. It not only addresses the love between two women, but also the emotional impact that it leaves in all the involved parties. It is smart, sexy, authentic - perhaps the best lesbian movie that I have had the pleasure the watch, period.

Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) is happily engaged to Tim (Joakim Nätterqvist), and we meet them at the beginning of the film, making passionate love, and then rushing over to Mia's father, Lasse (Krister Henriksson), 60th birthday party. Once at the party, we are introduced to Lasse's fabulous wife Elisabeth (Lena Endre), and her precious daughter Frida (Liv Mjönes). All is well until Mia and Frida later on go to visit Elisabeth at her country house, in a beautiful island. Lasse was supposed to go, but didn't make it. Mia was not happy about it, because she wanted to talk to her father. This situation, of course, forces Mia and Frida to spend some time together. One thing leads to another, and Mia and Frida kiss each other, something that Mia regrets afterwards. She tells Frida, "I'm marrying Tim in a few months. I can't feel this way, don't you see?"

Eventually, Mia returns to Tim, and keeps preparing her wedding. Unfortunately, the tension is there, as Mia is in love with Frida, and vice versa - Frida is already a declared lesbian. Lasse, on the other hand, is a distant father, who rather doesn't get involved and tries to ignore the problem, with Elisabeth telling him at one point, "If you tended your family like your orchids, things would be different." All these situations will force Mia to make a hard decision.

It's always a long wait between professionally produced, lesbian themed movies. It's great that there are indie film makers doing their darndest to contribute to the lesbian movie scene, but it's such slim pickings finding a movie where you are not whincing at the acting or feeling like you are watching a uni student production. I just want to get involved in the story and not be distracted by detractions. Kyss Mig / Kiss Me carried me away.

What makes this movie great is so much more than this. Firstly, the story, the dialogue, and the characters are so engaging that you will be invested in what happens to Mia and Frida early into the movie. There are no cheesy lines, just compelling realism every minute.

Also (and critically), the two main actors, Liv and Ruth, are really fine performers, and well cast. There's a sweet chemistry between them which was tugging my heart strings as Mia and Frida's relationship oscillated between faultering and soaring. Frida (Liv Mjönes) has an innocence and child like determinedness about her that I couldn't help endear to. I also warmed to Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) as her character arc took her from sullen and a little self involved, to awakening to the truth of her heart.

With lighting, settings, and a fabulous soundtrack (Kyss Mig - With Every Heartbeat (Original Soundtrack)), director, Alexandra-Therese Keining, has created subtle moods and ambience which are always fitting for the moment. This is all part and parcel of the fact that this is a professional production, made by artists who really know how to make good cinema.

Kyss Mig / Kiss Me will leave you smiling.
