When Night Is Falling

Chic lesbian porn (and one fairly hot heterosexual session). A repressed woman engaged to a minister meets a female circus performer in a laundromat, and the two women set about exploring each other’s sensuality. Canadian writer-director Patricia Rozema (I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing) is an admirer of Bergman and Woody Allen, and like them she has a penchant for creating arty surfaces that pass for thought; this 1995 movie looks fine as long as you don’t think too much about it. With Pascale Bussieres, Henry Czerny, Rachael Crawford, David Fox, Don McKellar, and Tracy Wright. R, 96 min. (JR)
