Storyline

Armando, a middle-aged owner of a Caracas dental prosthesis business, is estranged from his father, who he observes occasionally from a distance. He finds a young man of the streets who negotiates a fee high enough for the boy to be used to provide Armando's masturbatory object. Although a following encounter ends in a beating for Armando, he continues to make the boy dependent. What is the final result that Armando desires? Is it something more than a conflicted relationship with a hustler? Written by tgkohn

Great story, complex characters, uncomplicated staging and direction allow the message to come through better
16 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Life is complicated regardless of your income, education, or family. Everyone wants to be loved and sometimes that's difficult to show and receive. Through raw footage, spartan dialog and the very patient dissection of complex characters they learn to love and trust and to be worthy of both. But that doesn't mean life sorts itself out right away and just when things seem to be great, the plot twists in gut wrenching ways and roles reverse. That doesn't mean it ends well for all.

Contrary to the comments of another, I found the raw staging, brief dialog and lack of music (except when one would encounter it in real life) to greatly enhance the direction of the file. It takes a bit more patience to find yourself drawn into the story, but its so much more honest and lifelike.

The two lead actors were great... very empathetic. Kudos
