Virginia (Maria Rojo) is taking a class at film school, and has decided on her solo project for the class. She will film herself and her ex-husband Marcelo (Jose Alonso) (who likes to leave the light on) while they make love. She carefully positions a camera under a chair, and maneuvers her ex-husband into making love to her in front of it. Eventually her strategems lead him to discover the camera and the ruse. At first, he is outraged, but eventually he gets into the spirit of the thing, and gets in a plug for his undertaking business while he's at it. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Qwirky, different, slightly sexy by rpmfla January 18, 2006 - 12:09 PM PST

I won't say much about the plot because, like jokes heard a second time, it wouldn't be as good without the surprises. There is not much plot to begin with so revealing anything would lessen the enjoyment.

One element that I will comment on is the camerawork. The challenge of keeping the camera in one position for over 90% of the film was handled very well and added to the feeling of voyeurism which creates much of the film's allure.

The DVD cover image is the most titilating moment in the film, but it is a very brief moment. The film contains concentual sex, but seems purposely self-conscious about it (for a reason).
