Barcelona, 1913. Alma is perhaps one of the most modern women of her day.Her husband, Dr. Leon Pardo, is a psychiatrist. This summer, he visited Vienna and became a follower of the revolutionary Dr. Sigmund Freud and his advanced theories about hysteria and sexuality. It all starts the afternoon Alma comes home and finds her husband in tears, about to disappear from her life and everyone else's. Giving no more explanation than a few incoherent mumbles, Leon runs off, leaving Alma alone and about to give birth. Salvador is Alma's brother-in-law and a psychiatrist as well. He is much more conservative man than Leon, is deeply in love with Alma. The only clue they have is a manuscript about hysteria and female sexuality based on four patients: An actress with a persecution complex; a psychotic woman who tried to murder her husband; a woman with a serious crisis concerning her sexual identity; a stranger who has discovered a terrible secret about her past. Following those signs, Alma and ... Written by Tornasol Films

Spanish comedy with an attractive Leonor Watling and a cold Luis Tosar
22 May 2006 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a Freudian comedy set in Barcelona , 1913 . The picture concerns about Alma (Leonor Watling) and her hubby Doctor Leon Pardo (Alex Brendemuhl) who is a psychiatrist follower of theories about sexuality and hysteria by Sigmund Freud . Her brother-in-law is Salvador (Luis Tosar) and married to Olivia (Nuria Prims), daughter of a famous psychiatrist (Juanjo Puigcorbe) . He is lustfully wishing to Alma . As Leon leaves her about to give birth and both start to investigate . The only tracks they get is a manuscript and going on a successive intrigues where are blended dangers , homosexual ball , brothels and a twisted ending . This is a fun Spanish movie that playfully questions sexual taboos through a Sherlock Holmes-style investigation .

This is a hilarious film and a sexy costumer comedy . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , adulteries , incest and adult scenes . The plot is ridiculous and embarrassment but has its sympathetic moments here and there and it is formed by some humor set-pieces that divide the action in diverse episodes . The movie is well set on Barcelona 1913 , Art Deco , and modernism epoch , being magnificently reflected in luxurious palaces , houses and rooms . The picture is starred by Leonor Watling (The bad education , Talk to her , Desire) , an Almodovar girl , she gives an enjoyable acting and Luis Tosar (Mondays in the sun , Thirteen chimes) who is miscasting but he is a serious actor no apt for comedy , and even though he earned his best reviews with Celda 211 he considers to be this one of the weakest performances . Both of whom are making an American career , she playing ¨My life without me¨ and Tosar with ¨Miami vice¨ . The motion picture was regularly directed by Joaquin Oristrell (No shame) being more famous as a writer (Love causes seriously damage your health , Off Key , Between your legs , Extasis) than as a filmmaker . The flick will appeal to Spanish cinema buffs . Rating : average but entertaining.
