What starts off as fun soon becomes romantic after the two exchange some sweet kisses and hugs. And yet that’s handled interestingly as well, with the movie using gothic and magic realism to heighten Lucia’s sense of loss.
Indeed, brilliantly shot and smartly edited, The Firefly is a feature debut writer/director/producer Ana Maria Hermida can be proud of.
Her first move is to lie and tell her mom she’s flying to Mexico when in reality she’s staying in Andres’ apartment. It’s a shock first encounter for both of them, to say the least.
The two make quite a pair, Mariana still in her wedding dress and Lucia in her brother’s bike gloves, hat and leather jacket.
If this is not a step you are comfortable with, let them know. Sometimes a girl may not be aroused (or she's feeling nervous) so her vagina isn't lubricated enough for a comfortable experience. And of course, couples should always use a condom every time they have sex to protect against unplanned pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Q: Everyone says that sex is fun and that it feels good. A: Yes, sex can be fun and feel good, but it's not true that sex just "feels good" across the board in any situation. It's normal for teens to have strong sexual feelings, but it doesn't always mean you have to act on them.
Immediately, Lucia’s instincts tell her to comfort Mariana, and Mariana’s tell her to trust Lucia.
Their love for and grief over Andres joins them and they quickly become close friends.
While this is hardly a new concept, you’ll struggle to find an original storyline such as this one that also features two women falling in love. As the film begins, we’re greeted with stunning shots of the streets of Bogota before meeting our equally striking protagonist, Lucia (Carolina Guerra), who is also our on-again, off-again narrator.
We quickly discover that all is not right with Lucia.
