Storyline

Al enamorarnos, apostamos. Y es un juego demasiado íntimo para asimilar con facilidad el fracaso. Elena sabe que el enfriamiento que atraviesa su matrimonio no es algo temporal. Alberto , su marido, un joven y prestigioso ingeniero aeronáutico, acaba de entreabrir una nueva puerta y parece decidido a atravesarla con alguien que no es ella. Alberto no pretende fingir, sencillamente está desorientado. Quiere a su mujer y a su hijo, pero intuye que la pasión que le inspira Diego es algo más que deseo. Diego, traumatólogo en una clínica privada, es un hombre sin dobleces ni prejuicios que se tira de cabeza a la piscina del amor arriesgando en ello su estabilidad emocional y profesional, como le advierte su jefa y buena amiga, Eva. Los engaños, las escenas de dolor, y la desconfianza crecen, interponiéndose entre los tres amantes. La confrontación es inevitable, y la ruptura se acelera. Pero Elena no está dispuesta a ceder sin más. Después de echar un vistazo a la situación, tensa los ... Written by Anonymous

Very realistic story of gay/bisexual/straight triangle
6 October 2001 | by (Palm Springs, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a dramatic, very realistic story about the internal strife of a bisexual man, torn between his beautiful wife and child and his desire for romance with a Gay surgeon. Well photographed and directed with excellent music. Excellent beach scenery. Explicit sex scenes are well done. The emotional pain of the 'bisexual' man (more likely a Gay man who married to please his parents and conform to societal pressures) is very graphically and honestly portrayed. The damage that his refusal to deal with his identity crisis causes both his wife and his lover is also honestly shown. Javier Bardem is excellent as the surgeon and Adriana Gil as the wife is stunningly beautiful.
