Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Sexual repression, class conflict, fetishes, and an Electra complex are combined in this fast-paced, but convoluted Spanish comedy. Angel, a botanist, loves feet and when he spies the barefoot Luisa in a flower shop, it is love at first sight. Luisa, unaware of his foot fetish and the fact that his attraction is coupled by her close resemblance to his mother, readily accepts his marriage proposal. She learns the truth only after they move into his country mansion and she wakes up to find her husband doing strange things to her feet in his sleep. He does not otherwise touch her, and she spends her days alone while Angel works in his lab. Relief is offered when Lucas, Angel's former professor comes to visit. The crazy old coot offers her sexual instruction while simultaneously embezzling from Angel. Meanwhile, in another part of the film, a one-eyed pimp, and hooker are involved in hijinks at a local night-club.
