Storyline

Anabel is a beautiful and innocent young woman who lives a normal life with her modest job. Oskar is a brilliant and handsome entrepreneur amassing an impressive fortune. His lifestyle goes beyond the limits of imagination. Oskar lives with an inner-emptiness that no possession or experience can fulfill. One day after almost running over Anabel with his car, a spark of mutual attraction is inevitable and a torrid romance ensues. Anabel begins to fall into Oskar's world of sexual and erotic games. Although Anabel tries to stay open-minded and play along for a while, Oskar wants more. With the self-destructive nature of Oskar, the fun and sexy games begin to decay and spiral downward into dangerous acts that lead to tragedy. Written by Anonymous

Provocative but ultimately not that profound
28 February 2017 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Anabel is a working-class woman, eking out a living in a low-paid job. Then she starts a relationship with Oskar, a handsome, extremely wealthy entrepreneur. Their relationship flourishes and for Anabel this is a dream come true - she loves Oskar and he is her ticket out of her dead-end life. However, Oskar has a rather perverse side to him and starts to demand more and more of Anabel. She is uncomfortable with the direction the relationship is headed but is she willing to give up the benefits of it?

Provocative and intriguing and had potential to be quite profound. The quandary Anabel finds herself in - give up all the luxury and wealth involved the relationship or stick with Oskar and endure his fetishes. Even after the climactic scene of the movie and its result, there was room for a deep, powerful ending.

However, rather than explore the situation, director Joaquin Rodriguez takes a rather quick, easy and trite path to the conclusion. There's no profundity or comeuppance, just an end. Even the ending he chose is badly done - sudden, like there was a time limit on the film.

Overall, still worth a watch for the build-up to the conclusion. Just be prepared to be let down after that.
