""Looking for Cheyenne"

A Small Happy Film

Amos Lassen

Now being aired on Here TV! And available on DVD is "Looking for Cheyenne", an intriguing, happy, little film. Cheyenne is a journalist who, after being laid off, decides to leave Paris, She is at a point in her life where she just wants to settle down. She is fed up with society so she decides to move away somewhere which is in the middle of nowhere. Her problem is that she leaves Sonia, the woman she loves, behind. Sonia is a teacher who loves her job and refuses to give it or anything else up for that matter. Sonia tries very hard to forger Cheyenne. She finds herself involved in an affair with a charming anarchist named Pierre and a perverse and dangerous woman, Beatrice. She realizes, however, that her heart belongs to Cheyenne and she begins to feel that if Cheyenne doesn't come back then life is not worth living.
The film also deals with politics, sex, love and philosophy and it is the style of the movie that males it so interesting. With the kind of subject that it deals with, this could have become boring and moralizing as well as dry but the director Valerie Minetto does not allow that to happen. She creates a world of art and shows sensitivity and originality. It is beautifully acted and beautiful to watch.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a lovely French film about a bisexual woman's search for love. She is uncertain if love exists and uncertain if love is worth pursuing. This is a very smart film that asks difficult and worthwhile questions.

For anyone who has ever doubted whether love is worth the chase, this movie continues that provocative debate.

Love may not be defined by how much we are willing to reconsider and change ourselves, but this movie supports the idea that little love exists without a willingness to consider change.

This is a sophisticated date film that is ideal for watching with popcorn, a comfortable blanket, a private setting, and someone you love."
