No Art, no Love, no Death, bad Sex
1 March 2015 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

The film failed to fully depict the art, the love, the sex, & the death that made this story so intense. Art formation made Jaime, Marcos, and Jose to meet; love was so intense but it wasn't captured by the camera.

The nudes and sex scenes where short and sporadic, and they didn't give the sensation of forming part of a long relationship spanning several months.

Other thing that disappointed me, was the failure to depict Madrid's crazy life of the early 80s. Crime and instability are showed through some audios from the newsreel in the background; but a more liberal Spain and the artistic boom of the 80s don't appear on the screen.

Art, love, and lust apparently are words that doesn't exists in the director's vocabulary.

Something much better could've been done with such a great story; just like they did with "Le Mepris" (1963) from Jean-Luc Godard.

PS: Almudena Grandes didn't receive the credit of the story in this film.
