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.

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.

"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.

This film has an almost Almodóvar quality to it. What I mean by this is that you begin to see how everyone's lives are magically interconnected as the movie progresses. For this reason alone I am inclined to label this movie as unoriginal. It is rather silly to the point of being goofy at times, unrealistic, but reasonably entertaining nonetheless.

There are different pairs in this movie, a student with a flamenco dancer, a middle age lady with a gigolo, an actress with a director, a young man with a whore, a business man with a man cruising for gay dates, a young girl with a policeman and a bartender with the sister of his fiance. All of them in a way or the other will meet at Km. 0, a central place of Madrid, and more or less all of them will meet with the wrong partner that in the end will prove to be the perfect one.

The only real "gay" couple is Benjamin and Bruno, meeting by chance while Bruno was supposed to be the one night stand of someone else. Benjamin claims to be interested only in sex, but when Bruno is ready to go, after their trist, Benjamin comes out like the romantic man he is, only that Bruno has committment issues he will need to overcome.

I quite liked also the pair about the middle age woman with the gigolo. Both of them are more deep than expected. But truth be told all the couples are nice on their own, with an interesting story that you can easily follow and understand, something difficult to manage having only 1 hour and half, 7 couples and 14 characters.

Nice movie, not strictly gay; in a way a proof that in Spain being gay is "ordinary", there is not prejudice, or at least not in this movie.
