a lengthy, initially, at least non consensual sex session
26 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Curious, little seen, Spanish oddity that despite one too many hang gliding sequences and a little silliness manages to engage throughout. This is in part due to the writing by Santiago Moncada, who also scripted The Corruption of Chris Miller and The Bell of Hell. Trouble is so interesting is some of the exchanges between older guy and younger girl and the questions of church, sex and society (this is only a year after Franco's demise) that the gialloesque moments seem almost stuck on. But, its a varied ride with a man dressed as a woman giving a massage, a throat slitting serial killer, a young priest getting into trouble and a lengthy, initially, at least non consensual sex session. Gets a bit infuriating now and again but just well enough done and that much different to compensate.
