Storyline

Coming of age. In Buenos Aires, Eloy is on the verge of manhood. He studies physics, helps with the family headstone business, and does advertising - handing out flyers while walking on stilts or wearing an empanada costume. When his melancholy father dies, Eloy imagines that his father visits him at night; the explanation is more pedestrian - Eloy has started sleepwalking. Things change abruptly: while sleepwalking, he falls through an open skylight into the bed of Elvira, a young woman from Barcelona visiting her grandmother. Elvira invites Eloy to become her lover and teaches him Tantric sex. Eloy discovers bliss. And his father? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Eloy: What a disappointment to discover I was a sleepwalker. Dad wasn't writing in my notebook. He wasn't reading it either, because the dead don't need to read to stay informed. I know because my neighbourhood borders on the Underworld. Every day I cross the border. The angels avert their eyes to avoid my gaze.They know that if they once looked at me, they would have to tell me that one day I'd have to stay on this side of the border... forever.

The good instructive
24 February 2014 | by (Azerbaijan) – See all my reviews

I've watched this movie by the advice of my friend who's liked very much and find it successfully. After watching movie, I have also loved this film. It is the one of the best erotic movies which I have ever seen. İnitially, this movie is instructive. It is described various sex positions, the ways of extension of sexual intercourse and so on. In the other side, it is not contain only erotic scenes. There are magic realist scenes, dreams, imagination, longing of father, amusing scenes and so on. Director Eliseo Subielo is one of the my best directors, his other movies are good particularly "El lade oscuro del corazon" which picturegoers must watch.
