"Oscar Desafinado" is a short Spanish movie that revisits in a very original way the traditional theme of ghost story. In the case at issue, the ghost is that of the protagonist's deceased wife with whom he has a deal whereas for two years after her departure he won't make love to another woman. Enter a new girl, who is totally in love with him - yet must wait for the two years to pass before she can even kiss the men she loves. Will the protagonist's previous wife let him finally make love to the new girl? Delicate, well structured, brilliantly acted by Julian Lopez and Barbara Goenaga, the short film manages to achieve originality notwithstanding the cliché and is greatly entertaining in telling the story of this supernatural "menage a trois".
