A callow, handsome, just-married professional finds himself attracted to his own sex when he meets another knowing, handsome, well-adjusted professional man. Sound familiar? No, it's not Making Love from 1982, but a 1999 Spanish film directed by Gerardo Vera from a script by ngeles Gonzáles Sinde, starring Javier Bardem, Jordi Mollà and Ariadna Gil. And while more sexually explicit than its American predecessor, it's not as dramatically incisive as it might be, thanks to the filmmakers' preference for plush décor over dramatic specificity. Though very well-acted, it's not the film it could have been.
