Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Angelina Maccarone made her directorial debut with this comedy-drama, the Audience Award-winner at the 1997 New York Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. Young Afro-German lesbian Nabou (Viati Studemann), depressed after the departure of her punk-rocker lover Katja (Aglaia Szyszkowitz), bicycles aimlessly about the city when not hanging out with her spacy roommate Giuseppe (Isabella Pavkinson). To spy on Katja, Nabou accepts a job offer to work as a maid in Katja's building. But she quickly forgets about Katja after meeting her new employer, attractive ad exec Kim (Chantal de Freitas), involved in a ho-hum relationship with her male ad agency boss. It's not long before neon billboards flash and sparks fly as Nabou and Kim acknowledge their mutual attraction. A soundtrack of American pop music and handheld Super 16 camerawork adds to the kinetic and energetic erotic explorations. Shown at Outfest '98 (Los Angeles).
