A truly great masterpiece. A must see movie for everyone!
10 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Dealing with searching for meaning in the present with events in the past this incredible film features Award winning performances from Rosa Maria Sarda and Josep Maria Pou...it traces the stories of David and his self-destructive sexual urges which in a matter of hours destroys the perfect lives of the people that surround him.In this film everything has a price and even David who is a male hustler....must pay.
