Coming of age. In Buenos Aires, Eloy is on the verge of manhood. He studies physics, helps with the family headstone business, and does advertising – handing out flyers while walking on stilts or wearing an empanada costume. When his melancholy father dies, Eloy imagines that his father visits him at night; the explanation is more pedestrian – Eloy has started sleepwalking. Things change abruptly: while sleepwalking, he falls through an open skylight into the bed of Elvira, a young woman from Barcelona visiting her grandmother. Elvira invites Eloy to become her lover and teaches him Tantric sex. Eloy discovers bliss. And his father?

The most important thing was that my Dad took my hand and said: Your whole life you'll always be saying goodbye. Don't let that keep you from loving.
Thoughtful film of awakening sexuality and respect for women
This film has a low rating by the users here. Lower than some really
bad films that are more popular. It is a very magical coming of age
film which deals with sexual knowledge and its relationship to the
mysteries of life and the balancing of the spirit. It is told with
sensitivity and some humor. It is quite erotic but short of being
explicit. I think many young men in particular would benefit from
seeing a film where a woman is so respected, where the woman is the
teacher and the wise one. Men should see this film and imagine they
should be so lucky. It is not perfect, but it is quite charming and
makes very important statements about the higher consciousness of
sexuality and affection….in particular for young people.
