A Map for Love Synopsis

Roberta is a young lesbian living in Santiago. Her girlfriend, Javiera is a woman of the world; actress, a dancer and philosopher. Despite all of Roberta's best efforts to avoid it, she finds herself in an awkward situation when she has to introduce her new girlfriend to her conservative mother, Ana.


When Roberta can think of no other way to put off the meeting, she comes up with a bright idea - to go on a small sailboat and leave for a trip with Javiera and Ana, leaving them nowhere to run!


Awkwardness quickly becomes an alliance between the women, thanks to the wine on board and before long they reveal secrets and really get to know one another.


For all those who understand what it is really like to introduce your parents to your partner, A MAP FOR LOVE is a fresh and exciting addition to the new wave of lesbian cinema.

This film by director Constanza  is a fresh new take where it concerns the LGBT genre. Scenes are well-placed and the character of the actors are well-developed. Roberta is a young lesbian who has a child and her romantic relationship with Javiera, an actress, dancer and philosopher is getting serious, prompting her to find a way to introduce her to her mother, Anna. When the three of them go on a trip onboard a sailboat it's where the individual personas are well-revealed. A compelling look on family relationships, lesbian romance as well as acceptance the South American way.

An interesting film from Chile that explores lesbian romance and the initial anxieties on introducing the significant other to a parent.  Roberta and Javiera may not be your typical couple but the former  has reservations how to let her mother Anna  know about them. A sailing trip reveals a lot of these three characters, both on how they want to be perceived and how they expect to be accepted.  Engaging with powerful performances from Moro Andrea  as Roberta, Francisca Bernardi as Javiera and Mariana Prat as Ana. Worth checking out!

Wasn't sure what to expect from this film as I'd not heard about it from anywhere before, not from festivals or online reviews. The only other lesbian story I'd seen from South America was 'So Hard To Forget' (eagerly awaiting 'Reaching For The Moon' too!) but I was really pleasantly surprised and it is well worth discovering! Lovely performances and interactions. Much better than North American lesbian movies of late.
