Description Armando, a middle-aged owner of a Caracas dental prosthesis business, is estranged from his father, who he observes occasionally from a distance. He finds a young man of the streets who negotiates a fee high enough for the boy to be used to provide Armando's masturbatory object. Although a following encounter ends in a beating for Armando, he continues to make the boy dependent. What is the final result that Armando desires? Is it something more than a conflicted relationship with a hustler?

    A surprisingly good film!!! Haven't seen a film of this quality in a long time, which is saying a lot. It definitely left me speechless.

    No se si alguien me vaya a responder este comentario,pero porque las peliculas venezolanas estan empenadas en mostrar la delincuencia como tema principal de las peliculas venezolanas, acaso no podemos dar otra imagen??? recuerdo cuando vi azul y no tan rosa la pareja del protagonista era asesinado por un delincuente ,,,, siempre la delincuencia, otra pelicula que vi, era de una sra que era asesinada en una autopista y el pobre esposo quedaba solo, no recuerdo el nom bre de la pelicula, de manera que la delincuencia parece ser el principal tema, cuando nos quitaremos esa imagen autodestructiva?

    I watched it at the London Film Festival last year, everybody was speechless at the end. One of the best movies that I have seen from Venezuela (I am Venezuelan). Well for a reason won the Golden Leon in Venice. I cant commend it enough.

    Just saw this today at the Film Forum. It was a good movie. Its a refection of many sad things in Venezuelan society, though the relationships & scenarios in the movie exist everywhere including the US. Its about what poor, young, people who have no opportunities and a future do in order to survive and how class and wealth can often seduce them into doing anything. Its also about how desperate people are to be loved. I don't think the film was about homosexuality or young men prostituting themselves.

    Real estate agent Christian travels the countryside scouting for investment prospects. In a forgotten, seemingly abandoned village far off the main roads, he finds more than he is looking for. Getting entangled in an encounter with a taciturn teenage farmhand, he confronts his sexual frustrations and, in the process, gets drawn into the undergrowth of a bloodthirsty rustic community.
