(REAL NAME)   
"Sexo, Pudor Lagrimas" (Sex, Shame and Tears)is director Antonio Serrano's ("Lucia,Lucia") attempt at making a hip, sexy, fast paced romantic comedy that unfortunately trips over its own feet in an attempt to be all of those things. "SPyL" tries too hard and as a result achieves none of them.

Reportedly a huge success in Mexico, "S,P y L" may be a case of "you had to have been there" as time (end of the last Millenium) and place (Mexico City) play a big role here.

Though the actors are attractive and the film is well made on a technical level, you feel no kinship with any of them and instead you squirm, plug your ears with your fingers and wish you had a Butterfinger on which to munch.

The basic problems here are twofold: the inarticulate and silly screenplay and Serrano's frantic direction of his actors: most of whom that do their level best to makes sense of their under-developed characters.

Serrano should have a bunch of Pudor and weep a gallon of Lagrimas for this waste of celluloid but he somewhat redeems himself with his later "Lucia, Lucia"; though the remarkable, luminescent Cecilia Roth may have more to do with that success than does Serrano.
