Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Scripter Alvaro del Amo and director Vicente Aranda adapted this Spanish film from Fernando G. Delgado's prize-winning novel. The story follows the psychosexual experiments of upper-middle-class consultant Begona (Laura Morante). Japanese businessmen arrive in Madrid to test a palm-size video gadget called "The Owl," and Begona uses it as both a confessional and a method of capturing her curves on tape. She accepts the challenge of biker Elio (Jose Corando) to go into a rough section of Madrid and let herself get gang-raped, but a more respectable life also beckons on other fronts. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival.
