Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this downbeat drama, Reni (Cecilia Bengolea) is a woman in her early twenties who sings with a struggling rock group; she hasn't been getting along with her bandmates lately, and her personal life is nothing to speak about. Reni thinks her romantic luck may have changed when she meets Andres (Leonardo Brezicki), a handsome and charming man her own age, but she blanches when she discovers what he does for a living -- he's a hustler who is willing to have sex with men or women for the right price. Reni and Andres discover they share a mutual attraction, and she becomes emotionally involved with him, but as Reni falls deeper in love with Andres, she makes increasingly stronger demands that he stop sleeping with other people for money -- something he isn't inclined to do. Vagon Fumador was the first feature film from director Veronica Chen.
