Movie Info

When her search for the chemical components of "romantic" love prove fruitless in her native Hamburg, naïve German journalist Dorothee travels to San Francisco to conduct "research" in director Monika Treut's unabashedly hedonistic exploration of one woman's sexuality. Soon introduced to the city's thriving lesbian scene, Dorothee's encounters with a series of sexually liberated ladies eventually lead her to wonder if she has finally found the true meaning of love.

Critic Reviews for Virgin Machine

All Critics (2)

Has the power to quietly dazzle with a luscious black and white look, but neglects to deliver any drama with its message of lesbian liberation.
