El Favor

When Mora and Roberta, a lesbian couple, set their minds on having a child, they decide that Mora's brother should father the baby. But rather than broach it with him—confronting him with the fact that they're gay—they conspire to have Roberta spike his cocktail with an aphrodisiac and seduce him. Argentinean director Pablo Sofovich poaches on Pedro Almodovar territory with this sexy, ribald 2004 romp, but he lacks that director's incisiveness and never gets much further than the initial outrageous premise. While the talented comic actor Javier Lombardo is fine as the brother, everyone else strains much too hard to be kooky. With Bernarda Pages and Victoria Onetto. In Spanish with subtitles. 78 min.
