Storyline

Mora (Bernarda Pagés) and Roberta (Victoria Onetto), a lesbian couple, want a child. But who will be the donor? The two decide that Mora's brother Felipe, Argentina's top turkey-inseminator, should be the lucky provider. Poor Felipe gets more than he bargained for when he flies in from the country. He wants to visit his girlfriend, to visit his sister, and to meet with a business partner. The ladies have another plan, a plan to extract their desire. Their hope is that Roberta will easily seduce Felipe after he consumes the buffet of oysters, Viagra, and other assorted snake-oil aphrodisiacs. Poor Felipe has a lot to digest in his one night in the city. He finds out that Faustina, his devoutly Catholic fiance, is pregnant. He learns that his sister is gay (and that she wants more from him than a visit). On top of all of this, his (hopeful) future business partner is poisoned. Nothing goes as planned during Felipe's hilarious night in town.

A simple but effective very well acted comedy.
23 March 2005 | by ndlinuxSee all my reviews

It is a simple film and without many pretensions. But, just with the superb performance of Javier Lombardo as "Felipe" makes of this small film a great comedy. Felipe, an engineer agronomist specialized in the artificial insemination of turkeys, visits his sister Roberta (Victoria Onetto), who lives with his friend Mora (Bernarda Pagés). At the beginning, Mora seems to be very interested in Felipe, who waits for the visit of his fiancée, which knew through Internet, and saws just one time. It has, in addition, more visits, than indeed complement the development of the plot. Everything seems to go on wheels, until, unexpectedly, both girls ask a favor to Felipe, who seems not to be agreed to satisfy. The complications increase and again Javier Lombardo appears like a great figure in a perfect performance without which, the film could not have filmed. Nice to see, funny from the beginning to the end.
