You like it don't you? You enjoy it?
What? This? Yes, I really do.I love it. Totally. Especially when I get paid. It's something I can't describe.
Everything's got a price. Pizza... Seven bucks. Beer... Three. Rollerblades... Ninety and Andrés a hundred and fifty.
If you don't have a price you have nothing to offer. No Value. You're worth nothing. And I love being paid. Being appreciated, Being enjoyed.

...so i'm just shallow enough that when i buy a film where one of the co-stars is a male prostitute, i might expect to see some male body parts. we see EVERY body part of the female lead singer "Reni ", who is getting kicked out of a band, but we don't see any of the hustler's body parts; Leonardo Brzezicki is "Andrés", who Reni observes with a client in the ATM machine (several times...) In fact, they meet after Andrés has just finished up with a client in such a place. There don't seem to be any police in this town, with all this naughty night time stuff going on. Reni seems lost and rambling, and she insists that she doesn't pay for love, while Andrés is proud to get paid for things, and is confident with his place in the world. The editing and flashbacks leave us a little confused as to when things are really taking place, which is probably the intent of the writer/director Verónica Chen, but repeated use of fast/stop motion and numerous flashbacks are more confusing than they need to be. This was her eighth film, so she obviously has experience directing. Some cool night-time background photography of Buenos Aires - viewers will recognize Brzezicki, who was also in Testosterone in 2003, also filmed in Buenos Aires. If you enjoyed Smokers Only, see the film Ronda Nocturna, (Nightwatch), which also involves a male hustler in Argentina.
