Is That Real Sex ?
25 March 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

LA TAREA is filmed in real time in a single room and features a total cast of two actors . This is not an epic film by any means . In fact I wouldn`t have actually remembered its broadcast on Channel 4 if it hadn`t been for the fact that the two characters Marcelo and Virginia indulge in a sex session , but what a sex session it is ! It`s not the type of graphic sex you`d see in a hard core porn film but I don`t believe for a moment the actor and actress are NOT really having sex . Maybe that`s the point of the film , the way the scene is shot is rather subtle and it`s left to the audience to make up their own minds , but I don`t think anyone is that good an actor during a love scene
