La Primera Noche Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director Alejandro Gamboa, depicting the activities of a group of high-school pals, focuses on aspiring filmmaker Sergio (Osvalso Benavides), a sensitive youth who helps out an older prostitute. Bruno (Xavier Massimi) develops a meaningful relationship with Mariana (Mariana Avila), but the other teens make unfortunate errors of judgment. Sergio mistakenly blurs the borders between physical pleasure and love, setting himself up for a fall. Fatso (Julio Casado) utters boastful lies about his conquest of sexy Monica (Audrey Vera), yet he kids his mother for having a boyfriend. Fatso's comeuppance looms when Monica's skinhead brother goes after him with assorted gang members. An international jury selected this film as the top winner at the 1998 Guadalajara Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
