| Drama set in the seventies with a trio of sympathetic actresses : Candela Peña , Goya Toledo and Mar Flores
Mediocre acting, silly story and adequate cinematography in a regularly directed film . Average and cheesy film dealing with a witty as well downbeat look at actors , actresses , producers , filmmakers working in soft porn cinema or rated ¨S¨ in a country waking up after 40 years of repression . Set in Spain of the 70s , it deals with the soft-core porn Bizzness in Spain that sprang up after Franco was gone . Concerning three unfortunate actress (Mar Flores , Candela Peña , Goya Toledo) who attempt to achieve a hit in big screen , but only get to be hired by producers to nude them and to make love with . As they are hired by a powerful producer (Luis Zahera) and a filmmaker (Antonio De La Torre) , expert on erotic movies . The plot of the movies they are shooting concern about sub-genres of the seventies such as ¨Nunexploitation¨, ¨WIP¨ (women in prison) , and , of course , erotic or , soft-core or rated ¨S¨ .

This disconcerting as well as embarrassing drama contains crazy events , nudism , sexual scenes , amusement , disco-parties and tragical situations . The picture packs strong happenings , though surprisingly little sex and no violence , with exception some scenes played by Candela Peña who continuously shows her body . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the engaging description of a problematic epoch and the stylish set pieces , including enjoyable songs of the seventies and eighties played by famous singers such as ¨Baccara¨ . It is a passable but middling Spanish drama that offers no intellectual stimulus whatsoever , though it has hilarious moments and really not that much erotic scenes . Drama is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as profanities , adulteries , jealousy , and suggested sex . It partially set the tone of the times in the seventies and eighties when had been made lots of films about nudism or ¨Destape¨. The film attempts to give a dramatic and sometimes tragic tone but it doesn't work , resulting in a mediocre and failed film . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are some brief and no very agreeable moments ; however , it also packs uneven drama , crude humor , profanity and grossed themes . The picture bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Dias De Cine¨ by David Alonso , similarly concerning about naked actresses and shooting films during cinematic nudism time of the 70s . The picture pays tribute to a lot of actresses of the seventies and ¨Transicion time¨ who naked in big screen and magazines such as Maria Jose Cantudo , Nadiuska , Agata Lis , Barbara Rey , Africa Pratt , Jenny Llada , Loreta Tovar , Adriana Vega , Blanca Estrada and Susana Estrada who shows up in the film as an interviewer .

It displays a luxurious as well as evocative cinematography by David Azcano . Good musical score by Lucio Godoy considered to be one of the best Spanish musicians , he had many successes such as ¨Blackthorn¨, All about my mother¨, ¨The others¨, ¨Amador¨ ,¨Girasoles Ciegos¨ , ¨Mataharis¨ and many others . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Dunia Ayoso and Felix Sabroso who were born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria , Canary Islands. Both of them have directed some acceptable comedies with dramatic elements . Both , directors and writers , known for ¨Descongélate!¨ (2003), ¨Perdona Bonita, Lucas Me Quería a Mí¨ (1997) , ¨Fea¨ (1994) , ¨El Grito en El Cielo¨ (1998) and La Isla interior (2009) until recent death of Dunia Ayoso .
