Storyline

Pablo knows already, in his twenties, what he wants from life: to become a musician, be likeable to his mother, and find a lovely, faithful and nice boy to share the rest of his life with. Pablo suffers a difficult emotional crisis when his boyfriend leaves him, bored of his tenderness and so a demanding behaviour, that it's near jealousy. Driven by a high unsecurity, he applies to an exam to become trump player in the Youth Spain National Orchestra. But the one who examines him is his father, which lives for years apart from his wife and voluntarily forgotten by his son, whose sexual behaviour doesn't find exactly marvelous. As one can guess, Pablo's exam is not brilliant, and that depresses him yet more. Anyway, a trump player from Valencia which has made the exam with Pablo hasn't a place to sleep. Pablo takes this colleague home to spend the night. But, next morning, Salome appears. And she appears inside of Pablo's bed. Written by <oscar.esteban@p4.virtual.encomix.com>

great film - want to see again
20 February 2008 | by (Chicago, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Chicago at a film festival, and have been looking for a copy of it since. It's one of the best movies I have ever seen. The story is very fun and I remember feeling like I was somehow involved in the story. I believe that this movie was a bit ahead of time regarding the general acceptance of gay relationships in film.

As a straight but open minded fan, I wish this movie had been more widely promoted and not pigeon-holed as a gay-themed film. As I mentioned above, I have been unsuccessful in finding a copy of this movie in any medium.
