  • Summary: Cheyenne, a young unemployed journalist whose welfare payments are about to be cut off, decides to leave Paris to live a marginal life in the country. She leaves behind Sonia, the woman she loves. Sonia is a physics and chemistry teacher at a Parisian high school. She tries her best to forget Cheyenne, but it's not easy. How do we reconcile what we want with what we're actually able to do, what we think and how we act? How do we cope with a person we love and yet have to refuse? Looking for Cheyenne is a contemporary fable about the precarious states created by modern society, the need for change, and the power of love. (Regent Releasing) Expand

  1. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    A beguiling comedy from a Marxist-inflected thesis that is filled with characters who rage against the machine with pessimism, optimism, and naïveté--sometimes in rotation.
  2. Reviewed by: Lisa Nesselson
    Suspenseful, funny, touching, sexy and painlessly pertinent.
  3. Reviewed by: Joshua Katzman
    Valerie Minetto's intelligent first feature deals with a lesbian couple, but the same-sex angle is refreshingly incidental to the story line.
  4. Reviewed by: Gary Goldstein
    The film, adeptly directed by Valerie Minetto (from a script she wrote with Cecile Vargaftig), suffers from some awkward subtitling and a few ineffective fantasy bits but is otherwise provocative and well-acted. This one's worth looking for.
