| The Sex of the Angels
A 2-guys-and-1-girl comedy (with a modicum of kitschy dramatic tone), zeroing in on the pan-sexuality relationship conundrum happened in Barcelona, a modern tale smells like teen spirit from director Xavier Villaverde (a 10-year-absence since his last feature, THIRTEEN CHIMES, 2002).

The film kick-starts with a Hip-Hop routine performance and ends up in a casual and cozy dancing moment in the room with the three protagonist, the harmonious denouement maybe ephemeral since the trilogy linkage very likely falls apart when life goes on (a feeble solidification which counters the basic triangle axiom owing to human being's innate doubt and lust), but the film graphically proffers some sincere perception into the young generation's vintage point about love-romance (in alliance with the progression against homophobia discrimination), which is a further step over the rather stale coming-out melodrama during last one or two decades.

The three main actors are cleverly selected, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (afresh from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES 2011, 5/10) is much confident and versatile in her mother language; Álvaro Cervantes has a killing charisma which could be perceived and indulged by both genders (complies with the character's "seducer"tag and his unorthodox but quite common pan-sexuality attitude - it is the particular individual who we fall for, it is nothing about gender). Llorenç González, as the befuddled and jealousy boyfriend who has his immature trait but at least honest with his feelings. Pitifully besides that, other sidekicks are plainly foils without any distinctive antics to be remembered.

The film contains quite a few explicit sex scenes (between boy-girl, boy-boy and a three-way smooching near the end), may be a bit superfluous (beautifully shot though), and the plot has a sinuous redundancy of buzz-killing twist-and-turns, which could hinder the revelational message the film engages with. Personally I will give one thumb up to this film, simply because it is an innovative torrent of the genre and turns out be to a refreshingly uplifting adventure for the viewers (again sexuality is irrelevant here).

p.s: my Oscar race, Astrid and Álvaro both enter my top 10 of leading actress and leading actor race respectively.
