When an encounter with the swinging scene has an unexpected impact on David's impotence, Alice thinks she might have found the solution to all their problems, but the poly-amorous world is a difficult place for a love story to flourish.
As irregular as the film might be, it is sure that anyone who watches "Rencor" will be highly impressed by Lolita Flores' performance in it. Chelo Zamora is a extremely charismatic character, and Lolita takes advantage from the excellent lines written by Miguel Albaladejo. It is a shame, however, that the storyline is often iffy and that Lolita's leading man, Jorge Perugorría, is a little miscast.
I hope Lolita keeps getting meaty film roles in the future, although she seems more TV-oriented nowadays. Writer-Director Miguel Albaladejo is one to follow, since he manages to present a different kind of comedy in Spanish cinema, as in "El cielo abierto" or "Cachorro".
Overall rating: 7.
