Virginia is taking a class at film school, and has decided on her solo project for the class. She will secretly film herself and her ex-husband Marcelo with a candid camera while they make love.

"This film is amazing. The plot is rather simple: a nameless woman hides a video camera under her living-room table and invites a male friend over. The idea is to seduce him, capture the whole thing on videotape and use the results as her term project for her cinema course.

"As the film progresses, both characters show more (and often unexpected sides) of themselves. For a good bit of the film, the camera (which at that point is, remember, hidden under a table) can only capture voices and the movements of their feet. The power of the actors' body language is quite remarkable and the idea is odd enough to make this part of the film quite amusing. A lot is left to the imagination: you see the couple move closer and edge apart. There are embarrassing silences, there are moments of tension, of silent understanding.

"The film progresses glibly between eroticism, comedy, pathos, suspense and more. As the characters become more rounded, the relationship between them changes, as does the nature of the film. This is basically a film about different sorts of relationships. And it's a pretty good rollercoaster ride, with a twist ending to cap it all off. I've never seen so much done with two actors and a fixed camera. It's cinema at its purest.

"Whether you are a devotee of foreign film or are simply wondering what to do with your videocam now you've shot your sister's wedding, this is a wonderful film."

    Hello NLZ,
    Is there any chance to find "Jules Vernes Rocket to the Moon" (Don Sharp, 1967)?.
