Review of Red Doors:

Absolutely spot on.
The world unseen had to be made into a movie. The novel was intelligent and the story just flowed. The movie is better still.

Red doors is not strictly a lesbian movie but the lesbian story does feature here. Red doors is similar to 'What's cooking' in that it is a story about families and how different members have different challenges and dreams.

Tzi Ma, the father, absolutely made the film. His character is so distressed and tortured and he gets that across with very few words

The lesbian story between Julie and Mia is fairly standard but still well portrayed. No cheezy moments which is a relief

Jacqueline Kim was pretty good in this. More could have been done with her story but she delivered nonetheless

Overall 'Red doors' is a good movie. One to watch, not for the lesbian content, but for the strange and complex dynamics within families
