Openly and refreshingly sexual. No punches are pulled. The translated tagline says it all:

“Life has its way of teaching us. Life has its way of confusing us. Life has its way of changing us. Life has its way of astonishing us. Life has its way of hurting us. Life has its way of curing us. Life has its way of inspiring us.”

Wonderful acting by the boys and Luisa. Great chemistry, and gutsy performances by all the actors. Interesting cultural look. No punches are pulled.

The on-screen music and lack of a score help to make it more real. The silent soundtrack voiceover asides are a nice touch.
