Movie Info

Bilitis (Patti D'Arbanville) is a boarding-school teenager on the verge of full erotic awakening, but during the summer she spends with a married couple in the 1930s the nearest she comes to exploring her sexuality is to be caught up in a sort of wave of sensuality. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Bilitis

All Critics (2)

While the camera lingers freely over Bilitis' sexual relationships, the film's overt message is that lesbianism should be treated as an infantile disorder, something nice girls grow out of.

The film is something like a champagne advertisement, without the bottle, of course. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Bilitis

The film looks absolutely beautiful, which is no surprise considering David Hamilton, the director, was a photographer. It also explores its characters emotions in a very honest and real way, though a better fleshed out story would've given it more depth.
