Pelicula: 8th Spanish Film Festival
Cinema 1, Greenbelt 3

A wacky romantic comedy about Sofia, a chef. She has a really interesting life due to the presence of two men - Toni and Frank. Sofia is married to Toni. While Frank is her lover. They have what the French call a menage a trois or a threesome.

The film was presented by a somewhat funny narration that tells Sofia's tale from the time she was born to her rise in the culinary world. So true enough, there were a lot of scenes set in all sorts of kitchens and restaurants to highlight the cooking part. Yet don't expect this film to feed your gastronomical appetites or make you hungry in any way.

It focused more on the very unique relationship of the 3 main characters. So expect sequences of gratuitous nudity to help the audience better understand Sofia's strange yet fond attachment to two men, equally. But they are well edited and not vulgar in any way.

Mostly though it is a funny and provocative film that is entertaining and amusing while it lasts. Just don't take it too seriously.
