A Bit of Lesbian Discomfort?

pimentHeader-image-StephenBy Robert K Stephen

(TORONTO, ON) – Le Piment is a strange Cinéfranco short. Two lesbians invite a third into their bed for the night. The end result is that lesbians are not much different than heterosexuals.

The third lady becomes an outcast in the monogamous lesbian relationship and on the side lines as the couple quarrel about why they invited her in the first place.

Domesticated lesbianism. Looks like lesbians aren’t so liberal after all.

A non-traditional view of lesbianism. (Pepper (Le Piment), Canada, Director Patrick Robert, 7 minutes, French with English Subtitles, Canada, Part of Toronto, 2015, Cinéfranco Film Festival, 18 April Short Films, Bloor Hot Docs Cinema)
