Gael Garcia Bernal, the break-through young star of the acclaimed international hits The Motorcycle Diaries, Bad Education, Y Tu Mama Tambien and Amores Perros, now ignites the screen in this erotically charged thriller.
Bernal is Kit, a Brazilian living the carefree, single life in London. Then one night he meets a woman who turns his life inside out. Carmen is a flamenco dancer who fled a violent, obsessive relationship in Spain. She is now engaged to the gentle, mild mannered Barnaby (James D'Arcy from Master and Commander: Far Side of the World & TV's Nicholas Nickelby).
What starts as an awkward love triangle soon spirals out of control. The sexy, charismatic Carmen teaches Kit that things, and people, are never quite what they seem.
This twisted tale toys with illusion and reality, passion and artifice, decency and deception and the explosive secret that is revelead at the end shows a master film-maker at work.
