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.Read more ›
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.
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.
