Storyline

A month before he's to marry Carmen, Antonio finds a photograph of a man with his arm on her shoulder. The photograph triggers jealousy: he questions Carmen, Carman's friend Cinta, and his friend Luis who introduced him to Carmen. Cinta tells Antonio the man's first name. Carmen tells him that the man meant nothing to her, and that the photograph was taken before she met Antonio. She loves Antonio and sets out to wipe the photograph from his mind through exuberant sex, but her ploy backfires and Antonio remains fixated. Slowly he finds out about the man, and about Carmen's past. Will jealousy consume this couple or can they find a way to kill the green-eyed monster? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Interesting theme that cops out at the end
4 October 2001 | by (Bogota, Colombia) – See all my reviews

This Spanish film is basically well carried out by director Vicente Aranda and his leading actors, Aitana Sanchez-Gijón and Daniel Gimenez, but the ending is absolutely senseless because it doesn't confront the dramatic situation that is being set up during its long 110-minutes of running time. It leaves the audience with a feeling of having been cheated out of a more interesting denoument, without having to take what to us is the "easy" way out. For such a let-down of an ending, the film should have been shorter.
