A well-to-do Spanish attorney finds himself in hot water after falling for a shady Bulgarian man in the 2002 comedy-drama, Los novios bulgaros (Bulgarian Lovers). Middle-aged Madrid native Daniel (Fernando Guillen Cuervo, who also helped adapt the script) lives a life of relative comfort and is generally pretty happy with how things have been going for him lately.

Well acted, and its Faustian dynamic of mutual exploitation would be absorbing enough, but as Kyril draws Daniel into ever shadier situations, the film loses its tone and devolves into absurd political farce.
Slightly better than some recent skin-deep gay- and lesbian-themed movies.
Shows that Mr. De la Iglesia's long absence hasn't dulled his sense of stylish, cinematic storytelling.
The screenplay contains enough witty elements to lift it above the average sex farce.
Has a verbal wit and tang to it, which set it quite above most gay film fare in literary terms.
These Bulgarians might be nice to look at, but they have no depth - kind of like this movie. So I was entertained on the surface level, who needs depth anyway,
Garish, frenetic, but curiously dull...suffers from a serious case of the cutes, a disease that in this case proves fatal.
Won't leave you disappointed, but it may leave you hungry for something more substantial.
