Though sometimes predictable, this 2003 Spanish feature by Cesc Gay has much to recommend it, including a strong ensemble cast (Monica Lopez, Eduard Fernandez, Maria Pujalte, Alex Brendemuhl, Vincenta N'Dongo) and a wryly understated screenplay by Gay and Tomas Aragay. A group of Barcelona friends, their lives in flux, thrash about in confusion over sex, love, and relationships. The premise may seem both familiar and contrived, but Gay negotiates most of the intersecting dramas without resorting to soap opera histrionics, gradually homing in on the muted despair of his modern urbanites. In Spanish with subtitles. 95 min.
