Spanish director José Antonio de la Loma helmed this 1988 coming-of-age drama starring Anthony Quinn as an aging retired artist. When Quinn's ambitious daughter leaves her home to seek fame and fortune, she sends her young son to live with his grandfather, who resides on a Mediterranean island. While living together, Quinn fills the awkward and nervous boy in on the ins-and-outs of life, love, and sex. Also starring Maud Adams and Elizabeth Ashley, the original Spanish-language title of A Man of Passion was Pasión de hombre.
