Love can blossom at the most inopportune moments—and that’s what happens to Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) and Frida (Liv Mjönes), two thirty-something professionals who meet at a party celebrating the engagement of Frida’s mother and Mia’s father. As future stepsisters—not to mention the fact that Mia is herself engaged—theirs will not be an easy path. From this beginning, Alexandra-Therese Keining fashions a nuanced and deeply felt drama that does not avoid confronting the barriers—both personal and social—faced by her same-sex couple. For the heretofore hetero Mia, her attraction to Frida—a lesbian very comfortable in her own skin—is a shock. But, as their relationship develops emotionally and sexually, the film’s most impressive feat comes through showing just how organic their growing love for each other is. Love knows no boundaries, indeed, and with Kiss Me, Keining—with help from Vega Fernandez and Mjönes’ electric performances—has confirmed that old adage in a fresh and thoroughly involving way.
