The thwarted loves of Jean Cocteau and Raymond Radiguet, in the early 1920s. The death of Radiguet who did Cocteau sink in opium. A story under the influence of drug. A narrative description in the mind of Cocteau. A musical.
A few years ago, Martinez Lazaro release musical called "THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BED" a huge success in Spain and besides several technical problems, the movie was a brilliant, political incorrect, but very sincere look at couples relation. A couple of years later, he made a follow keeping only the male characters; but never reached the mix of fun and drama over reality of the first one. Now, and probably compensating women, Lazaro with Daniela Féjerman create a somewhat similar situation, an apparently frigid woman looking for love and sexual pleasure that finally gets an asexual but sweet man she falls in love with; only to fall to the sexual charms of his nutcase friend.
Acting goes from excellent for Alterio and San Juan (both get) to very good for Veronica Sanchez as the woman in a complex situation she tries to correct but cannot control.
Do not expect again political correctness here. There is plenty of nudity and the sexual scenes while brief and far from hardcore, get sometimes very realistic.
In brief; still not as good and funny as "THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BED", but the best romance movie this year.
