Amor de hombre

Like the shallow hit My Best Friend's Wedding, this lighthearted 1997 Spanish comedy depicts a warm friendship between a gay man and a lonely straight woman, yet unlike the other film it does so without erasing the man?s sexuality. If anything Ramon is too obsessed with sex, living as he does in a fantasy version of Madrid populated by willing studmuffins. Esperanza's Madrid, on the other hand, is an emotional desert; she's all but given up on finding the right man and spends her time hanging around with Ramon's crowd. Anyone hoping for action will be frustrated by the film's lazy pace, but writer-directors Yolanda Garcia Serrano and Juan Luis Iborra have crafted a warm, compassionate, and witty story of two mild eccentrics and the comfortable world they build for themselves and their friends.
