The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

A Complete Surprise
Not what I expected! An engagingly perverse love story. Antonio Banderas manages to be cute and scary at the same time with his Ed Gein haircut. Victoria Abril? Hot. Bondage, porn stars, drug addicts, mental patients--what more do you need in a romantic comedy?
An untroubling entertainment, and despite the sordid characters a surprisingly light bit of Eurocinema.
