A multi-story narrative , through five intertwined stories , examining several suburban Madrid couples' and how their sex lives and fantasies affect their relationships
21 April 2020 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This curiously sensual comedy by Paco León is a humorous take on some moderately hilarious views on modern-day sex and it gives more profanity and bad taste into the lives of people who could easily be our neighbours . Under Madrid's scorching summer sun , ordinary marriages and other kinds of couples enjoy real passion and the unquenchable desire to love and be loved , and explore their very surprising relations along various stories full of twisted sex and romances . In other words , the couples revolving around their complex relations , trying to find the road to happiness and determined to part with the social or self-imposed restrictions , even if this means they will have to deal with unheard , rather unusual, and above all , hard to pronounce philias . As Paco (Paco León) and Maria ( Ana Katz) are a couple looking for reactive passion of their sexual relations . Jose Luis (Luis Bermejo) tries to recover the affections of his wife Paloma (Sayago) sit down on a wheelchair after an accident which has limited her mobility , then the hubby making love her when she's sleeping , previously by taking sleep pills . While Natalia (Natalia de Molina) is a girl who can only find pleasure in her suffering , as she gets excited when is submitted to violent attacks or raping and then her husband Alejandro (Alex Garcia) prepares a ploy . Mª Candelaria (Candela Peña) and Antonio (Luis Calleja) 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, as she will stop at nothing to have a baby . A lonely call centre operator (Alexandra Jimenez) in permanent search for a man , is caught in the middle of a dirty and chaotic phone call , and eventually he falls by the deaf-mute who called . ¨Kiki el amor se hace¨ explores why do we want what we want? How far will we go to get it? What are the consequences of that fleeting moment of sexual ecstasy? After all, if there is wood, a spark and a will, the flame will start burning again. A comedy about sex . Sexual hangups and all that jazz . A festive erotic comedy from Paco León ! Some secrets lead to pleasure ! Sexy, daring, transgressive , brightly coloured and very funny ! An upbeat, vibrant crowd-pleaser! Everything you never knew you wanted to know about sex...

A not very original comedy in which we peer behind the closed doors of a seemingly normal suburban street , dealing with sex , love , relationships and taboo and that's why this Spanish film 'Kiki, el amor se hace' (2016) results to be an adaptation of 'The Little Death' 2014 by Josh Lawson . The title comes from an euphemism for orgasm , originally Kiki . As several couples will attempt to shed all inhibitions and delve deep into their well-hidden desires , sexual fantasies or rather fetishe s, with sexual experiments spin out of control and sharing the same irrepressible urge to investigate their own sexuality . These roles bear diverse type of paraphilia and usually have the same name as the actor playing the character . All of them love , fear , live and explore their obscure paraphilias . It is just a drama-comedy-romantic movie about sexual fantasies , fetishism and relationship which was regularly crafted , including a lot of obscene reference , jokes , intercouse , and nudity . All the segments and narratives are unique, fun , but silly and disconcerting .

It packs a lively and agreeable musical score by Al Acosta. As well as colorful and brilliant cinematography by Kiko De La Rica . The latter is considered to best one of the best Spanish cameraman and Alex de la Iglesias's regular . As he has photographed important films , such as : Los crimenes de Oxford , La Comunidad , La chispa de la vida , Witching and bitching , Francisco el padre Jorge , Blancanieves , Dias de futbol , Dias de cine . This quirky , unusual , dramatic and funny , at times , was middlingly directed by Paco León . Paco is a good actor who has played various films as main actor or secondary , such as : 3 Bodas de más , Embarazados , Toc Toc , La Tribu , Dieta mediteranea , Reinas , Sexy Killer. He has also directed a few movies , such as : Carmina o Amén , Carmina y revienta and episodes of TV series as Acaros and Arde Madrid . Rating : Mediocre 4.5/10 .
