Storyline

It's Christmas Eve, 1986, and Borja is a precocious teenager with a passion for film, among other things. As his extended family comes together to celebrate the holiday, the combined forces of the suffocating Chilean heat, free-flowing drinks, and repressed desire contribute to the eruption of long-held secrets. This hypnotic story from Chile is both an enticing family melodrama and an explicit erotic thriller about the ways that passion and desire control our lives - from our pop-culture tastes to our sexual fantasies.

Goofs

In the tombstone where Borja places flowers, where his mother and brother Vicente are buried, the mother is identified as Irene María Ovando de Díaz. Following the norm in Latin America (first the father's name, followed by the mother's name) her two sons should be named Vicente Díaz Ovando and Borja Díaz Ovando. But the tombstone reads Vicente Díaz Olivos, so any Latin American can think that she was not really Vicente's mother, but another woman with Olivos as her surname. See more »

Eggnog Delirium
26 December 2018 | by EdgarSTSee all my reviews

"Cola de mono" does have its moments, but it is a not very good little film about two brothers coming to terms with their homosexuality, on Christmas night 1986, in Santiago de Chile, after drinking too much 'cola de mono' (a strong sort of eggnog). Sexy it is, especially in all the scenes where brother Borja appears, very well played by young actor Cristóbal Rodríguez Costabal as the intense, clever and often funny bad apple of what is left of the Díaz family. However, the melodrama went beyond my tolerance level, the more so when credibility was badly affected by an unusual accumulation of secrets, male butts and people with knives, blades and hurting things of all sorts. Other sources list 102 minutes as running time, but I saw this 98 version (with all explicit scenes) and it seemed interminable. Fans of 'queer cinema' would surely rise the rating a bit.
