It's a romantic comedy, is the first romantic comedy for men. 'Lecciones para un Beso' (Lessons for a Kiss) tells us the story of Alejandro (José Julián Gaviria), a teenager from Bogota who is forced to live in Cartagena de Indias, because her mother (Cristina Umaña) opened a restaurant in that city. But it is there where he falls for an astonishing girl named María (Vanessa Galvis), intending to do the impossible to give her a kiss on the lips. Due to his inexperience in the art of love, Alejandro enlists the help of three clients of the restaurant -a romantic (Oscar Mauricio Rodriguez), a liar (Bárbaro Marin) and a materialistic (Salvo Basile)- to be taught how to achieve his goal. These men not only accept, but also make a bet to see who gets to lead Alejandro to his first kiss. Written by Juan Pablo Bustamante

Teen's first love in beautiful's Cartagena de Indias locations
8 April 2011 | by jadapespaSee all my reviews

Juan Pablo Bustamante's opera prima brings to Colombian up scaling cinema a fresh air. Superb cinematography,good sound and editing, even better credits and music, a bunch of well known colombian actors like Cristina Umaña, Catalina Londoño,Laura García and Salvo Basile, the marvelous Barbaro Marín from Cuba (El cuerno de la Abundancia) and the natural young actors capture your attention on a sweet and funny original story, plenty of humorous moments that reflects all the caribbean spirit. The stars of the movie are Cartagena de Indias and the eyes of debuting Vanessa Galvis (the camera loved the gorgeous young actress). It's a movie to enjoy without thinking too much.
