Liz in September

Liz, a former fashion model, lives on a commune with five fellow lesbians in a small oceanside town in Venezuela; diagnosed with terminal cancer, she spends her days pondering what she'll leave behind for posterity. Director Fina Torres, adapting a play by Jane Chambers, sets an edenic mood, presenting Liz's final abode as a sort of heaven on earth. She also generates some erotic tension between the protagonist and a straight woman from Caracas whose car breaks down near the commune; the two flirt as the stranger waits for her car to be repaired, and the prospect of one last fling restores Liz's passion for living. It's all pretty drippy, but the leads and the settings are lovely. In Spanish with subtitles.
