Storyline

Not Love Just Frenzy is a fast and funny adventure through the wild Euro club scene in the style of the scandalous Pedro Almodovar! A group of hot and horny twentysomething friends looking for love at Madrid's hottest disco get tangled up in a maze of wild sex, drugs and gunfights as they encounter flashy drag queens, self-absorbed gigolos and a whole host of other outrageous characters. Accompanied by a dynamite soundtrack and starring many of Spain's top young actors, including appearances by Penelope Cruz (Vanilla Sky), Javier Bardem (Before Night Falls) and Bibi Andersen (Kika) as a high-class lesbian pimp, "Not Love Just Frenzy" is too hip to miss.

Yeye, Monica and Maria are three roomates looking for a fourth. Yeye's cute friend Alberto has just met a new man Alex. Hunky Alex has a secret. Yeye is mending from a broken heart. Her lamented Max is on his way back to her, but first he needs to collect money from his pimp, Chrisina. Before Max can find Yeye he encounters Monica at club Frenzy. Monica with an agenda of her own, seduces Max and videotapes their lovemaking. Meanwhile, a Barcelona, policeman, Luis who suspects Max of murder, follows him and meets Maria... Confused? That's part of the fun of this colorful romp through the streets of Madrid that has a little something for everyone -- steamy sex, drugs, murder, and drag queens.
