At Kilometer 0 - the very center of Madrid - relationships begin, love blossoms, and lives intersect as 14 people looking for sex, romance or anything in-between, come together in a passionately exuberant sex farce. The story follows a series of chance meetings, missed connections, and mistaken identities that give way to unexpected sexual escapades and romantic couplings. KM0 is a fast-paced, inventive and stylish comedy. National Theatrical Release! Stars Concha Velasco, George Corraface, Silke, Merce Pons

It can put you in a good mood if you let it.
K. Harris
This is a movie about humanity, human emotion, and the interaction and development of wonderful characters.
Denzil W. Cuddy
The story is well written, comedic, with twists of 'agnst' that offset the fable/story line.

Kilometer Zero (Km.0) is a wonderful Spanish import about how missed connections and fate can alter your life path. Fourteen people are drawn to the title spot at the center of Madrid for various assignations on one of the hottest day of the year. A young film director arrives in town, looking to share an apartment with an actress friend of his sister. The actress, intent on kickstarting her career, spots a famous producer and hatches a plan to get his attention. A down-on-her-luck hooker arranges to meet an inexperienced groom-to-be to conduct some business. A dancer uses the internet to connect with a sex partner. A middle-aged businessman's neglected wife fills her hours of boredom by hiring a gigolo. The gigolo's roommate, a gay man, longs for a lover rather than just another sexual partner. In the heat, patience evaporates and fate intervenes, leading to numerous missed connections and mistaken identities. Several locals become drawn into the mix as well, including a local bartender who dreams of owning his own business; the bartender's shallow, robbery-prone fiancée and her younger sister; a police officer with impulse control issues; and a mysterious stranger who seems rather bemused by the whole scenario.
The film is extremely European in tone, and very unlike similar-themed American and British comedies. Sexuality is celebrated in all forms, including physical relations between older women and younger men, friendly intimacy and flirting between straight men and gay men, and the goal of helping a prostitute to earn what she's worth, rather than rescuing her from the profession.

Format: DVD
It seems we are in a time for the release of many fine Spanish films and the release of the DVD KILOMETER.0 is one of the best. Directed by Yolanda Garcia Serrano and Juan Luis Ibarra (yes, two directors and perhaps that is why the story is so equally cognizant of the female/male interpretation of relationships), this beautifully paced, hilarious, touching, tender comedy has it all. 'Km.0' is the very center of Madrid and serves as a coincidental meeting point for each of the 14 characters in the story. Mistaken identities, curious consequences, chance fortunes and misfortunes, surprise discoveries all collide and the result is a fun and entertaining farce that keeps your attention through the film. Each of the characters (a prostitute, a novice film director, gay men out for internet encounters, hustlers, middle aged needy women, sisters at opposite ends of the values spectrum, a sexually uptight fiancee, a needy bartender, a frustrated actress/singer, a guardian angel, etc) is well fleshed out and everyone of these disparate characters finds the entry to our heart at the end of a day. The cast is uniformly excellent: each one finds the center of the character so that we know the characters as well as we know our best friends. The musical score is a delight, the views of Madrid and the funky interiors of the various rendezvous all are imaginatively colorful, and the sensitivity of the two directors is secure and mature. This is a little marvel of a film is well worth buying for your permanent collection. In Spanish with English subtitles.

In an age of technology, the movie Km-0 is an excellent movie which details the adventures several Madrilenos (citizens of the city of Madrid) taken on when they simultaneously arrange a rendez-vous on-line. The plot becomes interesting as we get to meet the different people who meet for the very first time. They all come from different walks of lives. Some have a lot to lose if their secret date is found out while others simply search for instant self gratification and want nothing more. Like most of us, they have unresolved issues which they bring into their date/new relationship. Most importantly, since everyone is trying to be discrete with their secret escapade assumptions are made that the person they are meeting at kilometer zero is most definately their date. These assumptions give both a twist to the plot and thicken it. Everyone ends up with the wrong person on their secret date. Over all, each character is forced to look within; they learn a lot about themselves, become rehabilitated, overcome fears and phobias, find missing loved ones and find love. This is by far one of the best movies I have seen in years which gives the viewer a humanistic view into our new high-tech society, the flaws of on-line dating and the omnipresence of destiny. From a much more romantic point of view, if you are destined to be together it matters not how you meet but that you had the honor of the encounter which initialized the life changing event we call LOVE! I have already placed my order for this DVD.

Format: DVD
"Meeting a stranger in a public place + mistaken identity = hillarity." It's a premise that has been used in romantic comedy films for 40 years, but it is given a creatively modern and deliciously diverse twist in "Km.0" (Kilometer Zero), a 2000 romantic comedy set in Madrid. Fourteen diverse people, including an engaged couple, a nervous man looking for his first sexual experience, a hooker, a would-be director and a would-be actress, a rich matron looking for a fling without her neglectful husband, a musical producer, all plan to meet someone at the landmark spot in that city at the same time, and everyone ends up spending time with someone other than who they planned to meet.

It's a fast-paced, creative and warmly captivating farce, showing how people's lives can unexpectedly intersect and affect each other for good. The characters, and the actors that play them, are genuine and likeable, and the direction and photography are excellent. If there is to be one central moral of the story, it must be "Life goes on...and so do you", with subplots involving reluctant grooms, a mother-and-son "reunion" that doesn't go as she planned, one that could be titled "Queer Guardian Angel for the Straight Guy," and kind of a reverse "Pretty Woman" story. Not a gay film, but the gay characterizations are positive and endearing. In Spanish with English subtitles.
