Spain, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 46)

Director: Francisco Bellmunt

This film is a ribald and bawdy tale.

It tells of the marital difficulties of a young specialist in sex problems who discovers that his wife has a lover. He sets out to adjust himself to the situation.

This leads to a broad sex comedy which proclaims itself as an examination of the male psyche. Described as a keyhole chronicle of the waiting room, it is full of games, dirty tricks, furtive beddings, premature ejaculations, Saturday high-kicks and family dinners.

A film of conscious vulgarity that nevertheless manages to be funny, wry and observant.
