Shelter Me

February 16, 2013

Cinequest 2008

shelterI shouldn’t even bother reviewing Shelter Me – I fell asleep about ten minutes into it and woke up 1/2 hour later. It’s an Italian movie and stars Maria de Medeiros who was Bruce Willis’s girlfriend Fabienne in Pulp Fiction. It’s about a lesbian couple, Anna and Mara, who end up bringing home a Moroccan boy who has illegally immigrated into Italy (via their car). This was my last movie of the afternoon and I dozed on and off through the movie. Pathetic! But from what I saw, it was very very good. It was a little sad and a lot touching, and I recommend it just based on the little I saw combined with the fact that Cinequesting liked it. You can generally trust Cinequesting to give you a good review.

It’s also one of the only (if not the only) movie that featured a gay couple, which I thought was odd. The theater was filled with gay couples – as it always has been when Cinequest shows a movie featuring gay and/or lesbian characters. Past festivals have had a selection of great gay films, both comedy, dramatic and documentary; I really don’t know why the pickings were so slim this year.
