It's Christmas Eve, 1986, and Borja (Cristóbal Rodríguez-Costabal) is a precocious teenager with a passion for film. As his extended family comes together to celebrate the holiday, the combined forces of the suffocating Chilean heat, free-flowing drinks, and repressed desire contribute to the eruption of long-held secrets. This hypnotic story from Chile is both an enticing family melodrama and an explicit erotic thriller about the ways that passion and desire control our lives - from our pop-culture tastes to our sexual fantasies.

A film that could have been better with some careful culling, but at 102 minutes it drags. At times whilst watching it I found my mind wandering such was the languid nature of the action. Not a film I could recommend.
