Storyline

Oliveiro is a young poet living in Buenos Aires where sometimes he has to sell his ideas to an advertising agency to make a living or exchange his poems for a steak. In Montevideo, he meets a prostitute, Ana, with whom he falls in love. Back in Buenos Aires, he accepts a contract with a publicity agency to get the money for three days of love with her. Will he get what he's searching for when his ideal of love's pleasure is literally going in levitation while making love? Written by Jean-Marie Berthiaume <jiembe@videotron.ca>

Best movie I've ever seen
4 April 2000 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

It has it all: it has poetry, comedy, music, a moving plot, surrealism, some magic, a moral and more.

It is one of those movies you'll be talking about for a long time.
