It has one of the most erotic scenes I've ever seen.
5 June 2000 | by (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

La Tarea is basically entirely shot in one scene. And what a scene. It's steaming with the most frantic (and it looks REAL!!) sex scene I have ever seen. If what you want is something different, try it. This is one of the movies that makes you wonder: If these are not hard core porno actors, how do they do that?
