At this hilarious nexus of the personal and the political set in Spain, the personal dominates. While there is certainly a political statement in the symbolism of the manly American outscoring wimpy and effeminate European men, the delight in this short film is that the text remains lighthearted, while the subtext, should one wish to examine it, is available and interesting but not insistent. The ending is perfect and typical of the nuanced moments in the film. Ramon, the Romeo to Julieta, having used Ronald Raegan's magical phrases, lies sated, blissfully speaking of a future filled with love. His Juliet, while also replete with physical satisfaction, does not confuse it with love. "I 'm not even sure I like you," she sighs, knowing it was power that had made her world move, not romance.
Note that this apparently foreign film was shot in New York City.
