Exciting "ménage a trois"
I's a difficult situation that Maria José has to deal with - she's attracted by two guys at the same time and they end up in bed together. The three students arrange themselves in a "ménage à trois", and they promise to do this without jealousy. They share the same flat and they share the same bed. As one can imagine, this will work for some time, but is getting more and more complicated.
For some of us, this situation seems to be far from imagination, but the movie shows the aim for love and being loved and the ambition to keep their unusual way of life apart from the so-called normality in a very sensible way. It is not speed that makes this movie. It's the exciting storyline of love and sexuality, of spoken and unspoken dreams, of an unusual way of sharing life and of emotions breaking the self-made rules, of cheating and of jealousy.
Even though there are a lot of nude scenes throughout the film, it never gets naughty. Don't expect action. Expect drama. Expect great actors and a fascinating story.
