Verliebt, Verzopft, Verwegen (Amorous, Antiquated, Audacious)

Documentary Austria 2009

Vienna the 1950s and 60s: it was not exactly an easy time for lesbians. The film is about how they lived, how they dressed and the places where they met. The two directors spent five years researching the traces of a forgotten past. Using places to create a common theme, the film builds an imaginary bridge between the Vienna of fifty years ago and the Vienna of today. Through the words of the three elderly women we see an unusual and important example of oral history, which helps us to understand the imposed models of behaviour women of that time had to follow to conceal their sexual orientation: to hint but not to say, to appear without being recognized. An ambiance that recalls Greta Schiller's classic Before Stonewall (one of the twenty-five films presented in this year's retrospective).
