great movie, great actress
12 July 2000 | by (san diego, california) – See all my reviews

Humberto Hermosillo did a great job not only did he write the story but he directed it. very original, funny, and a great sex scene. a woman has to video tape herself and a man having sex so she hides a camera and invites her ex-boyfriend to help her with the homework. it is shot from a camera under a desk through the entire movie and takes a great twist. it deals a lot with women and their sexual roles in society. Maria Rojo is a great actress with great movies under her belt. even though she doesn't flaunt it she is sexual and sensual throughout although she was in her 40's when she did the movie.
