Movie Info

Director Matias Bize's erotic chamber piece details the debauched encounter between two strangers as they retreat to a seedy hotel room for an unbridled night of passion, only to find their personal boundaries and preconceptions about one another challenged as they attempt to get better acquainted. They've been as intimate as two people can be without even knowing each other's names, but now that the initial flames of passion have burnt out, it's time for these two lost souls to truly connect.

Pic's elegantly simple, Richard Linklater-esque concept, written by Julio Rojas, is energetically consummated by sophomore helmer Matias Bize.

Lewin and Valenzuela, while undoubtedly very attractive, are ridiculously untouched by their continual romping.

A steamy Chilean drama about a young couple who spend a playful evening together in a motel and circle around the challenges of true intimacy.

Suggests a mash-up of Before Sunrise and Tape run through Altavista's unreliable Babel Fish Translation service.

Audience Reviews for En la Cama (In Bed)

Two persons, one motel room. That's all this South American movie needs for its entire 85 minutes to tell the story of two strangers who went there for meaningless sex. Between their (pretty sexy and interestingly shot) fooling around they talk, about random things and also more and more personal stuff, fight and make up again, while neither wants to let their guard down just yet. Shaky cams showing mostly their naked bodies, their faces, with the room being the only location of this film, the reduction to the basics still works wonders as far as realism goes, together with the great acting and dialoges you can easily relate to. The two characters' final revelations are quite surprising and although the movie doesn't offer a solution beyond that it is still deeply satisfying. People easily offended by sex scenes and the way humans actually talk should skip this and live on in their ivory tower, mind you.

Intimate, spare film shot entirely within the confines of a motel room with only two actors. Seems like a recipe for a boring hour and a half. It is anything but. The action concerns two strangers who engage in a very sensual night of passionate lovemaking. In between, their conversation evolves from light banter, to probing questions, to deep self-revelations. At the end of the night, we know a whole lot more about what makes these two people tick. One believes if circumstances had been different, these two may have been able to build a life together. The actors are beautiful to look at, confident in their physicality, and able to convey a great deal without words. The script is without frills and loaded with lots of emotional frieght. This viewer felt fully invested in this relationship and hopes it may still turn out to be more than just one night, in bed. Four stars.
