Nothing exceptional, but this is an Euro movie that might be Julia Roberts romantic comedy that just doesn't flinch on the sex scene and talk and, well, just say things as they are. The Spanish tag was "Women can talk about sex too", which made me wonder if anybody in our times thought otherwise. The great thing about this movie is that it implies that sex is part of everyday life and not just a titillation prop. And on a cinematic way, it is a nice mainstream movie, not extremely deep, but utterly believable. If you watch it as a couple, I guess it can lead towards interesting talks about role definition in a relationship. Well it shows that the male and female world are separate entities - which might or might not be true - but is unflinchingly realistic and believable, even if in a non-politically correct way. Something of and about. Oh, and one arty scene, involving lots of paint, must be one of the most sensuous ever filmed. Try this movie out if you've got the chance.
