The Important Thing Is Love (1971)

Film details


Lesbians speak frankly about themselves. A psychiatrist puts forward the view that lesbianism is much more an emotional affair than a sexual one, and that all people are bisexual to a greater or lesser degree. Some of the women have been married, or have children, but they all find that they can relate to and be close to other women in a way that is impossible for them with men.
