Storyline

Lucia and Ophelia would never have been friends, but they were sisters. It's Lucia's wedding day. She will marry Juan, her partner for four years. Carmen, the optimistic and denying mother, decides to invite her other daughter Ophelia to the wedding of her first-born, wanting to put an end to the rivalry between the sisters who have not seen each other for seven years. Ofelia arrives at the wedding accompanied by her partner, Andrés, both live isolated in the middle of the Amazon jungle. The sisters are again pushed by the wishes of others. They return to be prey to that trap. Ofelia becomes calmer but more animal, primitive, free and dangerous. Lucia, strong and territorial, feels powerful although there is something she can not control: the desire of her husband. Ofelia and Juan desire each other from the first look. Ofelia, the stormy, the fragile, was also the freest when it came to exploring her sexuality. Lucia always enjoyed through her sister. She spied her, she was voyeur and... Written by lament

Your Average Melodrama
7 November 2018 | by TrTm316See all my reviews

Desire is your average melodrama: its exaggerated characters and contentious events appeal to the emotions, dramatizing a scenario surely uncommon but by no means improbable. Estranged sisters Lucia and Ofelia differ greatly in their attitudes toward sex, the degree of satisfaction sex provides each of them, and their ability and desire to please a partner. Occasional flashbacks show the havoc already wrought as the women became who they now are.

Unexpectedly brought together at Lucia's wedding, the sisters and the men in their lives find self-control overwhelmed by desire. Fidelity gradually goes out the window. When this is discovered, the crap hits the fan.

Desire is well acted for a melodrama, and not unbelievable, I think, even though the lifestyle in a wealthy estate is so unfamiliar. The direction left a couple of minor points unclear; that might be the result of my dependence on subtitles. And it's explicitly sexual, which apparently surprised or offended a number of reviewers. If this film -- whose plot is all about sexual desire -- had not shown strongly simulated sex, I would have felt that it failed to suspend disbelief. Desire does not, however, come even close to the "primarily intended to arouse" standard of pornography: it's just explicit enough that you know the characters' passions.

Watch Desire when your brain is too tired for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but not yet jaded enough for Dirty Blondes from Beyond. It's not great, but it isn't horrible, either.
