In what sense would you call this a "gay and lesbian
feature?"  OK, the heterosexual relationships depicted are
unconventional (to put it mildly), but homosexuality isn't,
as far as I could see, a central element of the film's
narrative (having said that, I saw it without subtitles and
might have missed some of the subtleties).
