Amazing
19 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like to watch Spanish language movies in order to brush up on my Spanish, especially for an upcoming vacation in Mexico :P This title seemed a little too depressing but something made me decide to go ahead and put it on anyway - I'm so glad that I did. Rather than down in the dumps upon watching this movie, I felt I'd come to terms with some of the grim realities of life as a single adult, and it actually gave me some hope.

If you are not comfortable with graphic sex scenes, I would not suggest this film, although it would seem that's obvious even from the tagline description. The sex is essential to the storyline, and the relationship between the characters, and it might open up peoples' eyes to realize that it's very realistic. Don't be scared of weird sex. It's out there, and people want it, people do it. It's a fact of life in this human body.

Although the storyline is simple and sad, upon reflection, I actually think it's brilliant. It's a story of overcoming grief, even coming of age, that really needed to be told. And the acting from lead Monica del Carmen, how she dealt with the vulnerability and complexity of the character, was a step above what you'll usually see. I would recommend the film in appreciating of her acting alone.

There are some reviews on here that says this movie is misogynistic, or no better than a porn. What a load of rubbish! The sex in this movie is an illustration of a consensual sexual dynamic and pattern that exists between men and women that is very natural. It may or may not reflect an ideal state of emotional health, but it's not abuse, and becoming more comfortable with and conscious of human sexuality is the key to opening up peoples' minds so that we can actually overcome misogynistic tendencies in society. It's also worth noting that it's still rare to see a powerful lead female on screen, in control of her sexuality, and capable of some fairly complex manipulation.

If you're a fan of character studies, art-house type stuff, and movies that are actually GOOD, do watch this one!
