Can strangers connect? Can casual sex become something else? In Santiago, Daniela and Bruno, both about 30, meet at a party, go to another and end up in a hotel. We join them there as passion becomes talk: do they know each other's name, have they been to hotels with others? There's some playfulness, more sex, a bath, pillow fights, condom problems, stories from their past, conflict. Each gets a phone call, each intrudes on the other's privacy. As the night wanes, will there be anything else? Written by
I watched this on Netflix streaming video with English subtitles because I was bored one night and the premise of the movie's description sounded intriguing. It is far more than I could have known! This movie is an amazing exploration into truths, relationships, and various layers thereof, and it gradually unfolds like layers of an onion.
The movie first begins with the couple in the throes of lovemaking resulting from mutual attraction at a party. They begin to dialog and note how they don't even know each other. As their personal life stories begin to unfold, so do layers of truths, jealousies, distrust, anger and all of the other emotions which tend to play out during many months, not hours, of relationships.
The movie fascinates if you enjoy the study of humanity and interpersonal relationships. The movie didn't simply end-- I'm still enjoying the food for thought which it left for me to ponder.
