Can the home-videos improve your sexual life and your marriage?
14 November 1998 | by (México) – See all my reviews

Maybe only the Mexican Wittiness can produce this film. A woman needs to do her homework, a natural and original film. What she does? She makes an appointment with an ex-boyfriend and seduces him while the hidden camera is recording everything. It seems to work but, suddenly he discovers the camera and the story has a dramatic change and an unpredictable end. María Rojo is not a beautiful woman, neither she has a good body, but she has a great "sex-appeal" that can make you see her as a desirable woman and understand José Alonso's behavior.
