Some years ago, I had the opportunity to watch the film in the LesGaiCineMad LGBT-themed festival (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual), the largest LGBT festival in Spanish-speaking countries, both in viewers, scope, and number of films.
This film certainly has all the ingredients that make me really happy: BDSM, hardcore sex, dyke and genderqueer, a touch of punk, amazing german bars, a superb cast, and an unparalleled ability to break sexual taboos that you wouldn’t even question. All this without losing quality in the script or photography.
Can we ask more from a film?
The film tells the story of Dylan (Lil Harlow), a very “femme”, sexy young Berliner, and her lover Claudia (Papi Coxxx) a ‘bun’ American Axel who works at a hotel (a hetero-friendly chain).
They lead a sexual life we all dream of, but like all couples, they have some problems. Dylan is afraid of opening her heart but Claudia wants more affection and engagement. To add to these problems, Helen (Maggie Tapert), Dylan’s mother, is in a sexless marriage in crisis. She is married to her boring husband Hans (Wieland Speck) and has nothing better to do than worry about her daughter who she pictures lost and alone in the big city.
When the couple breaks up everything becomes messy, especially when Helen decides to make a surprise visit to see how things are going…
Set in the international creative melting pot that is Berlin, this raunchy romantic comedy of errors confronts the last lesbian taboo: Mommy.
We will also find some cameos and appearances from great porn stars like Jiz Lee and Judy Minx.
Cheryl Dunye (who also plays Cabby in the film) is a film director, producer, screenwriter, director and actress. Her work is usually focused on issues related to race, sexuality and gender, particularly issues having to do with black lesbians.
I hope you really enjoy this film as much as I did!
