Angels blossom with fluid Sexuality - "If you don't take a risk, you're dead!"
18 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Life alone isn't easy, with two its complicated. These words of wisdom pretty much sums up "The Angels of Sex". A very well fleshed out character study about several complicated relationship between three people who refuse for conform to society's expectations, yet they themselves struggle to surpass their own limitations of how love and sex should be handled without prejudice. The film unspools the lives and loves of Rai (Álvaro Cervantes), Carla (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) & Bruno (Llorenç González) three hipsters who are dealing with the current realities of modern Spain, both in personal & professional relations. All three characters suffer distinct challenges and pleasures of life as their personalities are interwoven in meticulously yet naturally planned situations which tests their patience for what they are willing to tolerate from one another. As angels may be, do we really know what sex they are? In this film boundaries established by preconceived notions are of least importance as the heart wants what the heart needs. Filmmaker Xavier Villaverde flawlessly handles the character's in several surreal situations giving them enough material to allow for the realities of some very complex situations that are compounded by mixed feelings with ever more confusing results. This movie is a must see for three good reasons, Rai, Bruno & Carla. As they co-mingle and fuse their sentiments towards one another, One can't help wondering how long would a relationship of this sort really last, but as we see sexual desires and true love and pain surface, we realize that these are only people looking for the same thing... to be loved as intensely as the heart and flesh may permit for one never knows what, when or how long the good times may last. A film highly recommended for its embrace and truthful storytelling depicting an alternative situation beautifully performed with profound meaning and dedication. You are in for a treat as your eyes will feast on this deliciously, tasty & sweet love triangle. With the many temperature rising scenes presenting sexual fluidity at its best, thankfully this dish is best served hot courtesy of our main cast and their charismatic & overwhelming chemistry.
