Kiss Me

Kyss mig (or: With Every Heartbeat)

Details: | 2011 | 105 min

Restrained, somber, strict Mia, attends her estranged father’s engagement party with her architect boyfriend Tim, where they plan to announce their own intention to marry. Her uneasy relationship with her (philanderer) father is further spoiled by her soon-to-be step-sister, the blonde, vegetarian, free-spirited, and intoxicating Frida, who attracts the attention of all the men in Mia’s life – her father, brother, and fiancé Tim. Stung into re-establishing her connection with her father, Mia ends up spending time with Frida, and that’s when things really begin to go wrong. A beautiful lesbian tale, with great performances and cinematography, but its strength lies in the important subtexts – the depiction of familial relationships, facing up to one’s weaknesses, the hardship of honesty and the pain caused by infidelity.

Producer / actor Josefine Tengblad is a guest of the Festival and will conduct a seminar at Big Fish on Friday 30th March – 1pm to 4.30pm. All welcome. For more information and to book a place, contact Arthur on art@oia.co.za or 021 461 4027.
