Tantalizing and sexy, cult director Eliseo Subiela's latest film explores the tantric possibilities of sexual imaginations and awakenings. This thoughtful film delves into mysticism and spirituality. When 19-year-old Eloy sleepwalks and crashes through the roof of a beautiful woman, Elvira, he discovers the tantric and therapeutic powers of the Kama Sutra of which she is an expert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tender Love Story May 11, 2009
This is a tender love story between a young 19 year old inexperienced boy Eloy and a wise 28 year old woman Elvira. Eloy's father has died and he begins sleepwalking. His brother sets traps for him so that he will wake up and stop sleepwalking. Instead Eloy walks the roofs off buildings and eventually falls into Elvira's bed through her open skylight. From there the whole sexual awakening and teaching happens. Eventually they fall deeply in love and the story ends happily ever after.

In a way, this sounds like a wonderful, sweet movie that most would enjoy. Sadly, it's pretty far from what happens in the film. The viewer is treated to some pretty awful film techniques, needless slow motion, bad editing, over use of tracking shots, and just plain poor story telling.

To read the marketing description a person would think this is a treatise on the Kama Sutra and Tantric. It is so not that at all. Yes there are very very intimate scenes, these two lovers are very handsome without their clothes on. But an exploration of these two techniques? What we are treated to is a count down by Elvira. How many times can Eloy thrust before his nirvana? We see this scene played over and over again with Eloy becoming obsessed with that count - he has to reach 81! The pay off is him being mentally transported to a new city whenever he's reached between 80 and 100. This is no joke, that's exactly what is said in the film.

The film is supposed to have some mystic level. Eloy communicates with his dead father. He rides his bike through a cemetary every day and the dead line up doing hand motions to him, which, well, vaguely resemble the motion of self pleasuring. The Grandmother is some mystic able to see auras arounnd people. And Eloy and Elvira seem to have some mystic ESP connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tantric and erotic October 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a delicate film. It starts with the young male protagonist and subtly shifts to the female. She proceeds to educate him in the tantric and therefore, the spiritual side of love making. The erotic scenes are just that but from an entirely gentle perspective. There is an undertone concerning his relationship to his dead father. While, from one argument, appearance is a superficial concern, films are first and foremost, a visual experience. She is stunning. He is a suitable counterpart. The movie was a real pleasure to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't look down but don't look away July 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I watch a movie of this genre I am looking for bare breasts and as expicit sex as I can get. The main actress in this film is beautiful. And she has excitingly beautiful breasts. They are rather small but I prefer them small. The film is ubiquitous with her nude scenes, much to my delight. The film is punctuated with sensual nearly explicit sex scenes. If you have to have explicit, go rent a copy of Caligula or the Brown Bunny. Any of you reading this know of any other explicit films of this genre, please enlighten me. The film has an odd storyline but is not boring and even interesting at times. Oh yes there is a leading guy in this. He walks around on stilts, thus the title don't look down. For you guys with other proclivities, he shows his dork several times. The movie is enjoyable, well acted and most importantly, has lots of nudity.
If you are ever thinking of buying a film of this sort, see if Amazon offers a trailer. It might give you some idea if you'll like it. If you are still not sure, you might be able to rent the film for a couple of bucks and watch it right on your computer screen. Enjoy

There are things to like about this movie. The basic plot idea perfectly OK- and the actors are good. But in fact this movie is more than a bit of a mess. a lot of unneeded material was added in some sort of efort to make the story seem deeper in a sort of mystical sense- when in fact the added matter really just gets in the way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kind of boring softcore coming of age flick November 13, 2010
By dannho
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This review is for the Amazon VOD rental of this film. The story line is
a young man gets taught the ways of love by an older woman. I think this
film fails on a lot of levels. The film trys to be arty with the dialogue
between the two leads but it is just boring. I have a hard time believing
anyone talks like that while having sex, in Argentina or any where else for
that matter. There is pretty much wall to wall nudity but the film is just
not very erotic. Antonella Costa is a beautiful woman and looks fantastic in
the buff but that can't make up for how boring the film is.

2.0 out of 5 stars Depends on use July 11, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for something with a plot to masturbate to, this film is no good at all. I had to skip around to all the 'good stuff' and it was just way too complicated. This has nudity and stuff, but there's way too much of a story line if you just need something to relax your self with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unedited pages of a life growing into beauty February 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is totally amazing to shadow the lives of ordinary humans, mystical beings--as we all have the capability to be--growing into full adulthood. A film of two people who embrace one another completely within the wrappings of Eros, and the human spirit unfettered and whole. A great educational film for those abhor nakedness, and, settle for the old one speed, in and out sex, tinged with anger or disconnection. For stunted personalities, this is a film in need of a rating, or negative descriptive word. Either form of labeling, in toto, equals unclean and damaging to the morally innocent. Hugo Arana has shown that the advocates of "innocence" desire a fate out of step with Creation and earthly sanity. Hats off to Hugo and the actors!
