Editorial Reviews

Set in the time of the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, this epic story looks back on a darker time in Sapphic history when family, science and the state all conspired against two women in love. A Love To Keep tells the story of Pilar and Elvira, two teachers in Spain during the waning years of the Franco era. They meet and become friends, and before long the two fall deeply in love. When Pilar's family finds out, they have her committed to an asylum. Enduring painful years of electroshock therapy, behavioral conditioning, and isolation, she remains devoted to Elvira. Upon Pilar's release, the two find each other again. But the memories of Pilar's ordeal will not quickly fade, and the scars again test their bond.

I cannot imagine a movie of this quality and honesty being made in this country. A Love to Keep is an excellent picture of how lesbianism was viewed and persecuted in our not too distant past. Through a series of flashbacks we see the lives of two women in love through their happiness and tragedy. We also see the historic progress from persecution to greater acceptance and the cost to the individuals involved. The story is well knit and well acted. My thanks to the Spanish director and actors who have brought this film to life.

liked this one a lot, because you can learn on the example of spain about history, totalitarian regimes and their politics of homosexual discrimination. the story is heartbreaking, definitly will need a handkerchief ;)
i will never be able to understand how on earth it is possible to send a grown up against her will into a mental clinic. how it is possible to take someone's rights away. i'm just thankful to live in the 21st century.
a must watch movie!

A loving but yet sad and very disturbing movie.
After the movie you will find yourself holding & loving your partner even more.

Very brave for its country, but something you see once and pass on. Packaging and product quality were fine.
