Therese and Isabelle

1968 UR

A grown woman, Therese, pays a nostalgic visit to her old boarding school, stirring up passionate memories of her first romance -- with her fellow classmate Isabelle. The two lonely girls' erotic awakenings are explored against the backdrop of their repressive environment as they grow closer and eventually take their relationship into the "forbidden" realm by becoming lovers. Gorgeous cinematography marks this Radley Metzger-directed film.
