Both Sides of the Blade

Romance Drama


A woman's devotion to her partner is cracked when she sees his best friend, her ex-lover, on the street after years apart.

"Both Sides of the Blade" pulses with passion and confusion as a woman craves emotional intimacy with two lovers. We're drawn into a non-judgemental study of desire, illicit liaisons, and confusion of the heart as allegiances are tested. An interesting sideline is the way COVID-19 precautions are a part of the everyday, with face masks commonplace without warranting special comment. The film direction is as accomplished as the actors, creating a movie that both challenges and enchants. Cuts like a sword.
