Amor Vertical Details


In this Cuban-French sex comedy, architecture student Estela ([[Performer~P232087~Silvia Aguila~silviaaguila]]) makes a suicide attempt after her plans for solving Havana's housing shortage are rejected. This brings her into contact with earthy, cynical hospital nurse Ernesto ([[Performer~P197410~Jorge Perugorria~jorgeperugorría]]). Estela invites him home for dinner, and he succeeds in offending everyone present. Unable to find a quiet spot to be alone, they finally find a squatters' tenement, where their sexual frenzy causes a ceiling to collapse. They next try vertical love in a stalled elevator, trapping people in the modern building minus stairs. Fleeing responsibilities, they stage a romantic rendezvous alongside a country river, but once again they are interrupted as Cuban commissars arrive with papers and forms because the couple constructs a hut beneath a bridge. Amid the misadventures, lust turns to love. Shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
