Humorous succession of erotic encounters weaved into a daisy chain of delightful sensuality. DESEO is a modern-day adaptation of Reigen (La Ronde), the controversial stage-play by the celebrated XIX century Austrian playwright, Arthur Schnitzler.
I attached the link to my note of this wonderful film, beautifully produced, directed and starred, with an exquisite selection of music, which leads to images, to explore the interior of the characters. "Deseo" seeks to show characters who are in different emotional ranges, as to the socioeconomic conditions are concerned, in order to face them, and attach them through their more earthly instincts. "Deseo" reduces the human being, to the most primitive and innate: Sexual impulse. It is not surprising that "Deseo" is a film inspired by the famous work of Arthur Schnitzler's "Reigen. Zehn Dialoge " (1896 - 1897), which analyzes the eternal dualities of moral and amoral; of carnal desire (deseo), and sublimated love; of life and death, transported to the current Mexican province, where nothing is different from the rigidity of that Puritan late nineteenth century. Apparently, the original speech by Schnitzler, the human behavior, has surpassed his own time and circumstances; and make it work of this Mexican filmmaker, a proof of that.
