Under Madrid's scorching summer sun, ordinary couples with real passion and the unquenchable desire to love and be loved, share the same irrepressible urge to investigate their own sexuality through five intertwined stories.
María and Susana, two rebellious teens spend their summer in a catholic camp. With music as their common denominator, teen rebellion and ecclesiastic order will collide, creating a hymn to freedom and first love.
Through five stories, the movie addresses sex and love: Paco and Ana are a marriage looking for reactivate the passion of their sexual relations, long time unsatisfied; Jose Luis tries to recover the affections of his wife Paloma, sit down on a wheelchair after an accident which has limited her mobility; Mª Candelaria and Antonio are a marriage trying by all way to be parents, but she has the trouble that no get an orgasm when make love with him; Álex try to satisfy Natalia's fantasies, while she starts to doubt if he finally will ask her in marriage; and finally, Sandra is a single woman in a permanent searching for a man to fall in love. All them love, fear, live and explore their diverse sexual paraphilias and the different sides of sexuality, trying to find the road to happiness.Written by
After watching the original a while back, it faded from my memory fast, which will not happen with Kiki. The main difference is the direction & far superior performances.
The exiting, direction and photography is fresh and colorful, vicvdly showing a contemporary Spanish summer.
The actors are actually good, which is always refreshing in a comedy, and the scrupt is actually satisfying, with very good jokes spread throughout (the deaf girl story).
What is apparent is that some segments and stories are simply much better than the rest, and elevate the movie (think the one starring the director), while some drag and simply detract from the movie.
However it's still a fun romp all around.
Liked: -specific scenes, such as the therapist scene (feels like straight out of a Woody Allen scene) and the sex club scene
-some of the comedy
Disliked: - some of the stories and their pacing
-some of the dialogue
