Based on Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment': Ramón is a lonely laws student that lives in a rented room and thinks he has committed the perfect crime, but can't stand the consequences. A story of irrationality, anxiety and suffering.

The Peruvian army captain Pantaleon Pantoja, a very serious and efficient officer, is chosen by his superiors to set up a special service of 'visitors' to satisfy the sexual needs of the soldiers posted on remote jungle outposts. At first unhappy about this assignment, he nonetheless puts his remarkable organizational skills in action and in a short time has his 'unit' running smoothly. In the home front things get complicated though; his wife dislikes his long hours and the secrecy surrounding his work, and he, despite being a dedicated husband, feels tempted by one of his "subordinates".Written by

This is a lovely movie. It starts out a fun comedy movie. Then changes tracks halfway to become a sensual movie and then ends on a bittersweet dramatic note. And it does all this effortlessly without falling into any clichés.
The premise itself is very fresh and it is wonderfully developed. It is about a straight-laced army captain who is given a very different assignment. He is tasked with providing prostitutes for soldiers in remote posts. Initially he is reluctant but after he sees that he has no other alternative, he goes into his work with a great zeal.
While the side actors were not as good, the lead actors have done a very good job especially Salvador del Solar as Pantaleón Pantoja. This movie has been photographed beautifully and the sensual scenes are just amazing.
