Dona Herlinda wants one thing from her son--a grandchild. Problem is he's gay and in love with another man. Dona invites the man into her house...as long as her son gets married and gives her a child. She doesn't know he's gay...or does she? This was quietly released in the US in the 1985. It played only at one small art house cinema in Boston. I saw it back then and found it amusing. The sexual content is very subtle--aside from a few kisses and some casual full frontal male nudity we don't see anything. Also all out sexual activities are off camera. The acting is good, the complications are interesting and the final shot on Dona tells you everything you need to know. Hard to find but pleasant.
