2 Minutes Later (2007)


2 Minutes Later (2007)


01.20 h Tek toliko da znate koliko je stai dok ovo kucam. Nećete vjerovati ali ovaj film sam odgledao kao da se radi o vrhunskom remek djelu, a ne o jeftinom petparačkom gay krimiću. Razlog: pa film obuluje nagim muškim thelima, a i sviđa mi se glavni glumac, koji glumi fotografa koji slikava uglavnom muškarce.
Uz to u filmu ima i seksa , pederkog seksa naravno! Ni lezbejke nisu izostavljene, mada se većina pedera gadi lezbijki. Ko da bi im ruka otpala da pipnu malo pičke! Glavna lezbejka je detektivka, koja uz pomoć glavnog glumca pedera traži ubicu njegovog brata. Nasmijao sam se kad sam je vidio kako onako mršava i jadna vadi pištolj i obračunava se sa gnjusnim zločincem.
Nemojte da vas ovo obesrabri, film spada u onu jeftinu low cost klasu, pa mu je sve oprošteno. Bez obzira na sve to film je gledljiv i siguran sam da će te se zabaviti gledajući ga! E da i ne drkajte ga , nego gledajte film!

"2 Minutes Later" is a crime-fighting/comedy film with some flesh and sex (not excessive, but certainly more than necessary). It tried to equal the sex & violence quotient seen in similar 'straight' films. This film's director, who was present the night I attended, got on stage before the film screened, and said that his film was meant just as fun entertainment; nothing more, nothing less. -- and to the person who accompanied me to this screening, that's what it was. To me it was just a gay reworking of many straight suspense films, with a major plot element (spoiler) borrowed from "Blow-Up." It had a fair amount of tepid comedy added into the mix, justifying the director's statement that it could be called 'light entertainment.'

Probably to the chagrin of the filmmaker present (and to the management of the fabulous Tampa Theatre, a splendidly renovated 'atmostpheric,' built in 1926) the film was shown through the wrong lens. What I mean is, it appears to have been a film that may have been produced with an aspect ratio of 1:1.85, but it was shown thru' a 1:1.33 lens. Everyone was just a bit too thin, too tall, --and all the cars were a foot, or so, more compact. I tried to ignore this technical problem (which wasn't easy) and see the film the way it's producer intended me to. It had it's fun moments, some suspense, and I almost enjoyed it, until "The End" credit came on-screen with a question mark (?) added after a few seconds, a la "The Blob."

The leading lady, who was also present in the theater that night --and accompanied the filmmaker on stage before the curtain went up, was the best actor in this film. As improbable as her character was, her lines were better than those of the leading man, --who was likely chosen for his shy boy-next-door 'look' rather than for any acting ability. I'm not knocking him, nor the filmmaker, nor anyone else associated with this production. It was obvious that the budget wasn't big, but neither was the thought put into this. Better films have been made on smaller budgets.

And it seemed to me that it borrowed an awful lot of bits and pieces from many other films, --besides the obvious big 'bit' borrowed from "Blow-Up."

Overall, a mediocre effort. I rated it 5.

Cafe com liete - Short 18 min

Dok sam gledao ovaj Brazilski filmčić razmišljao sam o tome kako nekad u životu i pored najbolje volje
ne ide sve onako kako bi smo željeli. Naprosto nije sve baš onako kako je mali Perica zamisliio.
Moramo se prilagođavati okolini, mjenjati navike, a ponekad i prijatelje, mjesto življenja....
Danilo i Marcos su prelijep gay par koji planira da se preseli u zajednički stan i da odu negdje na odmor.
Slatko ih je bilo vidjeti kako se raduju tome u krevetu.
Međutim sve se mjenja kada Danilovi roditelji poginu u saobraćajnoj nesreći.Njegovi planovi se dramatično mjenjaju jer mora da preuzme brigu o svom mladjem bratu Lucasu.
Braća stvaraju jedan poseban odnos pokušavajući da upoznaju jedan drugog i prilagode život jednoj drugačijoj porodici u kojoj svoje mjesto treba da nađe i Marcos.
Kratka dirljiva priča , lijepo režirana sigurno će vam zadržati pažnju 20-tak minuta uz jutarnju kafu.

KM .0 (2000)


Km 0

Nedavno u Novom Sadu sam se dobro ismijao. Preko jednog telefonskog chata ja i jedan moj drug smo kontaktirali jednog momka i napomenuli mu da želimo da se "družimo" u troje. Kada se momak pojavio, iznenadio se jer je mislio da se radi o paru muško - žensko. Onako zbunjen ušao je u stan i rekao kako je došlo do greške. Ja sam se slatko nasmijao i rekao: " pa koliko vidiš ođe nema žena" Pili smo pivo i pričali o swingerskim doživljajima, a ja onako rekao da mi je fetiš da smo svi goli dok pijemo piće i pričamo. Bez oklevanja se skinuo go i nastavio da pije pivo. Obećao mi je da će prvom prilikom da dodvede neku ribu da je zajedno krešemo, al pod uslovom da ne izjebem i njega!

Ova komedija je prepuna takvih grešaka. Pogledajte je i nasmijaće te se od srca!

Country: Spain
Language: Spanish


Km. 0 is a exuberant sex farce that takes a frenzied peek into the lives of a group of 14 people whose lives all intersect one very hot summer day at km. 0 – the very center of Madrid. The various plotlines – several of which involve gay men – all involve chance meetings, missed connections and mistaken identifies, but from the confusion comes unexpected erotic interludes, new friendships, hot and bothered sexual escapades and romantic couplings. It’s gay, straight, young, old: there’s the 21-year-old movie director hopeful who is fresh off the bus and is picked up by a prostitute instead of his sister’s friend; Marga (Concha Velesco), an older woman who beds a male escort (Jesus Cabrero) only to discover that she may be related to him; a gay dance instructor whose personal encounter with a chat room guy offers sex and maybe even love; Sergio (Alberto San Juan), a virgin about to be married but befriended by a interested gay man; Silvia (Marce Pons), an aspiring actress who will do anything to get a part in a big musical. Amidst the heat, dreams are realized, clothing shed and romance triumphs! A rollicking, fast-paced comedy about finding your right partner, even if it means trying on a few beforehand.

Cowboy Forever 2006




Ova prelijepa priča smještena meðu Brazilske gauchose je ko stvorena za pogledati uz jutarnju kafu negdje na nekoj terasi pored mora.
Prelijepi pejzaži, zgodni momci i simpatična priča probudiće u vama želju da upoznate nekog domoroca ( lokalnog momka ) koji se tu negdje oko vas vrzma, pomalo nesiguran u sebe, željan da ostvari nešto što još nikada nije osvario!
Priča plijeni svojom jednostavnošću i naèinu na koji je isprièao prelijepi gauchos Govinda.

Inače iz ličnog iskustva mogu reći da su ljudi koji ne žive u urbanim sredinama mnogo iskreniji i jednostavniji nego gradske ajkule koje samo gledaju kako da vas strpaju u krevet i naprave recku u nekom svom tefteru. Pa čak i kada uspijete da uspostavite kontakt sa takvim likom , vrlo brzo će te shvatiti da jednostavno ne mogu , a da nešto ne slažu ili odglume. Valjda ih život tako nauči pa drugačiji i nemogu biti.

English:

Paris, 1984. In a cruisey city park, Adrien, a sophisticated, middle-aged doctor, meets Manu, a buoyant 18-year-old. Manu turns down Adrien’s proposition — then asks him to hold his jacket while he joins an orgy in the bushes. Not the best way to start a relationship, yet Adrien takes Manu under his wing. Manu needs guidance, and Adrien comes alive as he tromps around Paris with this energetic newcomer. Adrien’s friend Sarah worries that he’s being taken advantage of, but Adrien disagrees: “You can ask anything of your friends. ”
The possibilities of friendship are at the heart of this elegant new film from André Téchiné, whose 1994 Wild Reeds is already a classic. Once again, the French auteur demonstrates the complexity of desire — plus his knack for casting sexy, intense young French actors. In lesser hands, the May/December dynamic would slip into heartbreak and stop there, but Téchiné raises the stakes as The Witnesses becomes a story of relationships tested by the onslaught of AIDS.
Like a cinematic string quartet, the film intertwines four fascinating lives. Carefree Manu turns dangerous under pressure. Adrien, a doormat in love, becomes a medical warrior fighting the deadly new virus. Sarah struggles to balance motherhood with artistry, while her macho Algerian husband falls into his first gay affair. The Witnesses takes us through a tumultuous year asking us to bear witness to the lives it portrays.

Friends and Family (2001)

Dok mi neko nije poslao poruku da predstavim ovaj film nisam ni znao da ga već nema u ovom blogu. Nema ga vjerovatno jer sam ga davno odgledao i očito nije ostavio utisak na mene.
Interesanta je tema, prava crnogorska - gay mafia.
Na žalost više se i ne sjećam detalja, a mrzi me da vadim film iz bunkera u kojem sam zbog gostiju sakrio sve nepodobne materijale.
Uglavnom likovi u filmu su zgodni mafijaši, ali bilo bi mi draže da su ih skinuli u ponekoj sceni. Nema Golotinje - sramota. A ja obožavam golotinju, neformalnu pogotovo. Pa u rijetkim situacijama kada zovem društvo da gledamo neki film ili naprosto da pijemo piće i pričamo uvjek predložim da se svi skinemo goli. Još me niko nije odbio;), mada je moje društvo uglavnom str8.
Sve u svemu pročitajte ovaj opis filma na engleskom , pa ako ste zainteresovani za ovu komediju pogledajte je!

Ima li pravo bilo ko da u ime ljubavi ugrožava druge? Ovaj film me je užasnuo! Svi smo mi pomalo promiskuitetni, upadamo u razne flertove, ponekad i u nepromišljen sex sa jednom ili više osoba. Poneko će nas privući fizičkim izgledom, poneko osmjehom , neko pogledom, ali uvijek moramo znati da je to samo trenutak koji u nama budi strast i želju. Mislimo na sebe, priuštimo si malo sebičnosti i ne dozvolimo da uradimo bilo šta što može ugroziti naše i tuđe živote. Zvuči možda kao horor , ali dok ne upoznamo nekoga uvjek moramo prepostaviti da je osoba koju toliko strastveno želimo nosilac HIV-a . Ako nekoga vidite prvi put u životu pa ma kako dobro izgledao, nemojte se upuštati u avanturu zvanu sex bez kondoma.     Ovaj film je vrlo poučan u smislu da znamo šta ne treba raditi.

 

zClaudio je 35-godišnji bankarski menadžer koji živi sa partnerom.HIV pozitivan je već 10 godina i stalno je pod nadzrom ljekara koji ga kljukaju raznim ljekovima.
Jednom prilikom sretne prelijepog Andrea sa kojim započne flert. Andreo se toliko zaljubi u Claudia, da u trenutcima strasti ne razmišlja o opasnostima koju nosi veza sa HIV pozivnim čovjekom.
Ono što me zaprepastilo je da je Claudio dozvolio sebi ima sex sa Andreom bez kondoma iako je znao da ga time odvodi u smrt.
U ime ljubavi smo spremni učiniti sve. promijeniti posao, preseliti se u drugi grad, posvađati sa porodicom, drugovima, dovesti sebe u sukob sa okolinom i sve je to opravdano do granice kada dovodimo u pitanju svoj i tuđi život.
Pogledajte ovaj film i znaćete o čemu govorim.


Film je sa engleskim titlom. Pogledajte ga na Youtube.




Synopsis: Claudio lives a very regimented life, from his job, to his boyfriend to the HIV medication he must take. He longs to break free and when Andrea enters his life, he offers a life without complications, but with many risks.

1963-3-giorniQuick review: I have to think that when this movie came out in Italy it caused some controversy. After I watched it I was unsure what to do with it. It was compelling and a story unlike any other I've seen. But one with a dangerous message. Andrea is willing to risk everything, including his life, to be with the man he loves. That is Claudio, who has HIV and is tired of always having to be careful. So, Andrea convinces him to throw caution to the wind and engage in unsafe sex. The experience is liberating for Claudio. He enjoys the sense of freedom and is conflicted with the guilt he feels for putting Andrea at risk, his relationship with his boyfriend Dario, and his decision to move to Milan. His doubts are in major contrast to Andrea, who knows exactly what he wants. He wants to be with Claudio, but he knows he could never live such a regimented lifestyle and promises he'll never take HIV medication. Those choices can only lead to one conclusion. It's controversial, but if you can accept the premise -- a mighty big if -- it's a hell of a love story.

7053fcf17dedf440df9c70d59f7d9c6ec5cec8bec5cec682377340b9217504c96gDAYS

35-year-old Claudio works as a bank manager, has been HIV-positive for ten years and has an HIV-negative lover named Dario. One night, Claudio meets a sexy young waiter named Andrea, and the two hook up. Claudio cautions Andrea that they need a condom, but Andrea lives for the moment, and the moment is all about love. So they proceed unprotected. In the weeks and months that follow, Claudio sheds his rigidness, letting Andrea’s devil-may-care love of life infect him. Are these guys grossly irresponsible, completely nuts or just hopelessly in love? You be the judge.

Broken Sky (El Cielo Dividido) 2006


Dva studenta Gerardo and Jonás započinju strastvenu ljubavnu vezu i uživaju u njoj sve dok Gerardo ne postane opsjednut drugim momkom, Sergiom.
Ovaj Meksički film obiluje emocijama, seksualnim nabojem, scene hipnotičkog plesa u discoteci...

Iako je film titlovan na engleskom, u filmu nema mnogo riječi, scene govore same za sebe, tako da se film proživljava sa lakoćom.
Svakako ga preporučujem jer većina ljudi proživi osjećaj strasti, ljubavi i na kraju odbacivanja.

Also Known As: Broken Sky (USA)
Runtime: 140 min
Country: Mexico
Language: Spanish

English:

Broken Sky works like a silent film. There is a soundtrack, but roughly, only 2 pages of character-to-character dialogue over it's entire 140 minutes. Director Julian Hernandez turns that into an opportunity to fill the screen with sensual imagery and camera movements that emote louder than words. Watching Broken Sky is a reminder to the eyes, and an argument for why you should avoid bathroom breaks.

In 2003 Julian Hernandez made his first feature, a student film, A Thousand Clouds of Peace. I don't remember it or Broken Sky getting any theater runs outside of New York. So big thanks are due to Strand Releasing for putting both out on crisp DVD (it makes up for Strand's release of the homophobic, self-hating Two Drifters last year).

Beyond anything else, Broken Sky is a love story between Gerardo and Jonas. Hernandez extends the time they share by filming in long shots and tracking shots. Some of the tracking shots only move 6 feet, but it's essential in locking in on the eternity of the moment. The rooms and hallways and streets of Broken Sky are of the modern world, but Hernandez makes us feel like we're in la-la land, walking around with tunnel-of-love vision.

But as the title suggests, Broken Sky isn't just a love story, it's a lovesick story too. Post-breakup, the camera moves in, especially on Gerardo. The freckled skin on his back once looked like that of a marble statue, but in grief, it stretches a bit and wears the age of a pock-marked old man.

More than twice, a scene is as simple as a hand on a shoulder (this made me think of the finale in M where a man puts his hand on Peter Lorre's shoulder in a sign of compassion). With two bodies and their eyes, these actors say more silent than a monologue in the rain by Ben Affleck. Props to Julian Hernandez for saying so much with so little and making the viewer feel every moment of it.

The Mudge Boy (2003) -Repost -


The Mudge Boy (2003)

The Mudge Boy je film produciran od strane TV kuće Showtime ( Queer As Folk ). Reržirao ga je Michael Burke, na osnovu svog kratkog filma
Fishbelly White iz 1998. godine koji možete pronaću u kolekciji kratkih filmova Boys Life 5.
Duncan Mudge, je tinejdžer koji odrasta radeći na očevoj farmi. Nakon smrti majke njegovo ionako čudno ponašanje postaje još izraženije. Okolina ga naravno ne razumioje i izlaže ga ruglu. Često kao objekat ismijavanja Duncan jedva shvata gdje griješi.
Momci sa okolnih farmi ga pokušavaju prihvatiti kao čudnog ili polu retardiranog tinejdžera kojeg nemogu promijeniti i kao takvog ga i zovu u društvo, najčešće na pijankama u kojima ga zloupotrebljavaju da im donosi i plaća piča.
Duncan potajno oblači majčinu odijeću, priča sam sa sobom i sa sobom stalno vodi svog ljubimca pijetla čiju glavu stavlja u usta. Nemoćni otac pokušava da osposobi za život pri čemu često i sam gubi živce!

Duncan se sprijateljuje sa Perryjem, momkom sa obližnje farme koji ga pokušava razumjeti. Perry primjećuje da se i fizički dopada svom "čudnom drugu" što u njemu izaziva posebne seksualne frustracije....

Kroz ovaj film možemo sagledati dijelić frustracija koje izaziva čudno ponašanje bolesnih ljudi. Strah od nerazumljivog i nepoznatog ljude često natjera na iracionalno ponašanje. Da li smo i mi sebe uhvatili kako bježimo od psihički nestabilnih ljudi ? Dali bi u širokom luku zaobišli čovijeka koji priča sa kokoškom i čiju glavu trpa sebi u usta?
Jeste li se ikad zapitali da li isti strah imaju pojedinci u prisustvu feminiziranih gay likova? Naravno ne treba poistovjećivati psihički bolesne ljude sa gay populacijom, ali pojedini ljudi iz neznanja osjećaju strah od homoseksualaca jednako kao prema duševnim bolesnicima.
Neznanje je naš najveći neprijatelj!

The Mudge Boy is a 2003 American movie produced by Showtime. It was directed by Michael Burke and based on his 1998 short film Fishbelly White, featured in the compilation Boys Life 5. On January 17, 2003 it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and in 2003 and 2004 it made the rounds at several gay & lesbian and independent film festivals around the country. The region 1 DVD was released on May 9, 2006.


Duncan Mudge (Emile Hirsch) is a shy and immature small-town mama's boy who spends most of his time on his father's farm with his favorite chicken. When his mother suffers a heart attack and dies, Duncan behaves even more oddly, occasionally adopting her voice and wearing her robe to sleep in.

Most of the kids in Duncan's town don't understand him and make fun of him. His only friend, Perry (Tom Guiry), is Duncan's link to a few friends after Duncan gives them money to buy beer. As Duncan hangs out with his new friends more and more, he discovers an attraction to Perry.

The Mudge Boy represents some of the finest cinema to come out of Sundance in 2003. The story moves at a leisurely pace but excels in character development and dialogue. Burke revels in his setting- a rural, emotional wasteland painted with eerily quiet, majestic landscapes which idly conflict with the title character's introversion and despair. Emile Hirsch affects a delicately nuanced, charismatic performance as the title character, struggling with the death of his beloved mother. Richard Jenkins demands every speck of attention possible while he's on screen; it's a pure delight to watch this fine actor work. I usually don't pick out smaller performances, but Zachary Knighton as the chief bully's "sidekick," Travis, is superbly threatening and commands the screen, as well. His performance is staggeringly three-dimensional and defies every cliche of "teenage bully" portrayals ever committed to celluloid. There's a big future for this guy. Overall, this film deserves to be seen by anyone who appreciates uncliched, moving drama filled with wonderful performances

Awards

The Mudge Boy was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award and the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. It won a Grand Jury Award LA Outfest.

Ben (Adam Fleming), nesiguran i povučen momak i Johnny (Michael Cassidy) se jednom prilikom zadese sami na bazenu. Samouvjereni Johnny tokom razgovora sa mlađim Benom ipak pokaže svoje skrivene želje i nedoumice oko sopstvene seksualnosti.
Ovaj kratki film me je podsjetio na jedan događaj iz mog tinejdžerskoh doba.
Nakon jednog treninga odem sa prijateljem da se istuširam pa da poslije odemo na piće. Usred tuširanja on pređe u moju kabinu i kaže mi: Ajde mi istrljaj leđa. Dok sam prelazio sapunom po njegovim širokim leđima, osjetio sam uzbuđenje, ali i strah da neko ne naiđe. Nervozno i žurno sam ga nasapunjao i rekao da se ispere. On se okrenuo prema meni i rekao: Okreni se i ja ću tebe. Kako sam već bio dovoljno uplašen od straha da neko ne naiđe, ali i da se ne primjeti da me to pali, rekao sam mu: "Neka ja sam već završio sa tuširanjem, a i bojim se da neko ne naiđe, može stvoriti pogrešnu sliku o nama."
Da sam slušao moje želje tu je trebao da se desi poljubac, baš kao i na ovom filmu.

"Light Boy" Ben admires Johnny, the star of the new school play ("A streetcar named desire"). Unbeknownst to Johnny, this admiration will soon turn into lust. What then? Can the two boys remain friends or after certain limits are crossed there is no turning back? When Johnny invites Ben to swim together after having a few drinks, the conversation will become more intimate.

Both actors manage to convey a youthful spark, while at the same time expressing defined personalities in this brief story. It was especially interesting to see Michael Cassidy play a role only too familiar to his character in The OC or Hidden Palms, although here perhaps he is a most riveting seducer, full of sensuality.

There is something very subtle in the way these two boys interact with each other. Not only because of the ambiguous source of desire that ignites a more contact physical exchange between them or Ben's suggestion of practicing a fellatio on Johnny. As they move swiftly in the swimming pool, it's easy to realize that, indeed, something lies beneath the surface.

In the credits, director Adam Salky acknowledges filmmaker Tom Kalin; then it should be easy to understand why the fascination towards ambiguity and the subtlety are paramount guidelines in this short film.

Boca a boca (1995) aka Mouth to Mouth - Non gay movie


Boca a boca (1995) aka Mouth to Mouth

Ovo definitivno nije gay film, ali se nasao na ovom blogu prvenstveno zbog ljubitelja Javier Bardema. Naprosto nakon predhodnog filma "Bent" malo komedije nije na odmet. Još Španska produkcija, pa da vam 2 sata zaista prođe u trenu i da se malo razvedrite.
Jooj kako Javier dobro glumi onog momka što ga zovete telefonom , a on priča seksi priče. Phone sex mi gledajući njega postaje privlačan. Inače ovo je prvi film u kojem on nije peder, ali posao da svojim glasom seksualno zavodi nesretne pedere koji plaćaju vruće linije ga navodi da se "uživljava" i u takve uloge. Odlučna gluma, dobra režija i dosta humora čine ovaj film vrlo gledljivim.

Malo vulgarne terminologije, ovoj komediji daju na šarmu svakodnevnog života. Pogledajte ga u dokolici. Ako očekujete gomilu golotinje toga u ovom filmu nema.

Although the comic possibilities of phone sex have long since been exhausted, the Spanish farce "Mouth to Mouth" still gives this well-worn topic a try.

As in Spike Lee's "Girl 6," the main character is an aspiring actor who finds that auditioning for roles is no less humiliating than being paid to talk dirty to strangers, and that the phone job may actually be the more interesting professional challenge.

So Victor (Javier Bardem), who has the look of an overgrown schoolboy along with the hunky swagger of an Antonio Banderas wannabe, throws himself into this new form of acting exercise.

Just as Girl 6 dreamed of Dorothy Dandridge, he imagines himself as Travis Bickle at critical moments and turns the duties of phone sex into an escapist ploy. Manuel Gomez Pereira's film strives for escapism in its own uneasy way, mixing soft-core seduction with giddy pratfalls. For instance, there is a zipper mishap to interrupt one of several strained heavy-breathing episodes.

All of the characters in this Madrid-based story are predictably excitable, to the point where the film sorely needs the antic talents of Pedro Almodovar. When elaborate plot complications seem ready to raise the film to a fever pitch it never reaches one, despite the strenuous efforts of Bardem and the rest of the cast.

Events escalate once Victor, who took the phone sex job without expecting to meet Ms. Right, finds himself falling for a femme fatale named Amanda (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon), who is one of his elusive clients. She says that her husband has also had tele-sex with Victor, which naturally leads to ever more outlandish complications.

As it turns out, most of the characters are play-acting, which gives "Mouth to Mouth" (a catchier "Boca a Boca" in Spanish) its chance to weigh in on show business and artificiality.

One of the film's funnier bits has Victor being told by his spitfire of an agent (Maria Barranco) that he looks too American to land a role in a big American movie. To overcompensate for this, he turns up with open shirt and slicked-back hair, smoldering histrionically as he kisses the hand of an American talent agent. (The film's ear for vulgar Americanisms is notably weak, as when it gives this woman the line "Let's go, chap!")

Later on, Victor encounters a bratty American filmmaker whose combination of ignorance and arrogance makes an easy target. Victor launches into a furious diatribe in a restaurant after the boy wonder orders Coca-Cola, but he winds up impressing everyone with one more inadvertent show of his acting talent. Meanwhile, the film adds tranvestite waiters to this scene, sets some of its action in a phone sex disco and lets Ms. Sanchez-Gijon appear in blond, red and dark wigs at different moments. Despite these festive nods, the Almodovar touch has left the building and was never really here.
