Sexo, Amor y Otras Perversiones (Sex, Love and Other Perversions)


I know the title sounds terrible, but this 2006 Mexican film is a collection of eight sex themed shorts, some are okay while others are terrible.

I liked because is dark funny Una Mujer Decente (A Decent Woman) about an older and single man that his mother is dying. Also surprisingly good is Max Viagra about a couple of porn actors that fall in love. One that should become a full feature film is Maria en el Elevador (Maria in the Elevator) as it’s interesting. The rest are just awful, except for two.

La Llamada (The Call) is predictable but the story is sort of funny and Dos Meses de Renta (Two Months Rent) starring Patricia Llaca and Nuria Kaiser has somehow an unexpected end. Both are not good acted, but then both are of lesbian interest in a not so traditional way. And there is a third one, about a mature female teacher that’s having an affair with one of her female students, but the short is simply awful and I wont even mention the name.

Can’t complain as I laugh a bit, some shorts have very good songs and some are interesting. Seems like the movie was a huge audience success in Mexico, but I cannot recommend it. So if you feel like giving it a try, do it at your own risk.
