Kiss Me (Embrasse-Moi!)
Océanerosemarie & Cyprien Vial, 2017, France, 86 min
Kiss Me! is an ordinary rom-com with a typical rom-com story … except it is about lesbians. Brava! It is about time lesbians were featured in a feel-good romcom, and we can thank French comedian and director, Océane Rose Marie for the good time. The story centers around Océanerosemarie (yep, that’s her name), a chiropractor with a big heart and a very active sex life. She meets Cecile, a svelte photographer with almond eyes, and is smitten from the start. Océanerosemarie must win Cecile’s heart and will stop at nothing, even a Flash Dance style crash of Cecile’s phobia recovery group. Oceáne has said about films, “We lesbians have nothing – or we only have depressed girls and serial killers. We deserve to have a fine, nice and sweet and funny romantic comedy.” Thankfully, the times are a changin’ and Oceáne’s film gives us even more reason to celebrate. (SH)
