Editorial Reviews

SYNOPSIS:

On a hot summer day in a vacant Madrid during a period of social and political transition in Spain, Miguel (José Sacristán), a feared and respected journalist, sets up a meeting with Ángela (María Valverde), a young journalism student, in a friend s studio. His intentions are clearly sexual; hers are less clear. Chance events force them together for more time than they would have chosen: locked in a bathroom, naked, without the possibility of escape.

Removed from the outside world, the pair, who represent polarized generations, are pitted in an uneven duel involving age, intellect, ambition and experience. The political and social context of the period provides the background to the power shifts that continually take place between them over twenty-four hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Artfully erotic 2-person dialogue play January 15, 2013
Format:DVD
While the "pairing" of the two main characters is far-fetched, it is made believable through the persuasive rhetoric of the male protagonist. One of the sexiest movies I have ever seen and great dialogue. While watching I couldn't help thinking that this would make a great 2-person play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everybody September 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jose Sacristan can speak for hours without boring anybody; just articulating his voice. The problem is that in some moments of this movie, he really has nothing to say and if you do not understand Spanish you might be losing his greatness.

His co-star does whatever she can; and delivers a sensuality, Sacristan can't; but she is never up to his acting level.

It is a curious blend of intellectual a erotic movie (lots of nudity almost no sex).

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy watch March 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice easy movie to watch. You can watch for a while stop and then pick it up sometime later ad get right back into it. Not much of a plot but a nice easy character study without appearing to be too deep or having to look for hidden meanings. Everything including Maria Velasco is right out there and she is a pleasure to look at

2.0 out of 5 stars Cold shower not required October 14, 2013
Format:DVD
This film tries to be intellectual and erotic, and it succeeds in some small ways, but not enough to ignite the fires of the mind or the body. The premise is interesting: An older (60-ish) famous and successful journalist trapped in a bathroom with a young and beautiful (30-ish) journalist aspirant, both of them naked. As wonderful as that may sound (at least to us men), neither one wants to be trapped. Expecting to be stuck for at least a day or two, they pass the time with talk, mostly. But none of the talk is very interesting. The old journalist is not wise, he's mostly a lecher. He's a decent enough guy for that; he's not aggressive. But neither is he very seductive. And should you start to feel some empathy or pity for how lonely he must be, devoting his life to the noble calling of journalism and all that, keep in mind that he is happily married and he doesn't really care that much for journalism.

Let me back up a bit. I told you that neither one wants to be trapped naked in the bathroom, but the old man does want to have sex with the girl. That's the only reason he agreed to meet her in the first place. This is what he does and this is what he has always done, with lots of girls over the years, in spite of being happily married. This girl, an aspiring journalist, agreed to meet him for an interview. Apparently she was not aware of his Lotharian reputation. Once he takes her up to a friend's apartment he makes his intentions clear, sort of. At first he tells her that he just wants to see her naked, just to look at her, telling her some boring, lame story about old men needing to look at young bodies. Like I said, he's not much of a seducer. The girl refuses at first and makes to leave, but instead returns and presents herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't see this coming January 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Think "Steam Bath" and the viewer may get an idea of what this film is doing. This very complex, very challenging. There are the surface elements, things that are quite obvious, that will appeal to some viewers and then there are the challenging little bits. The intense introspection that the characters experience during the course of the movie. Real questions, like who am I, what roles to I have in the universe, and so on. This more of a Rated R movie, not appealing to prurient interests and very thought provoking. It was a good investment, I think I will be on my close at hand shelf for a long time.
