Movie Info

Friendship turns to rivalry when a woman finds her affections shifting in this moody drama from Mexico. Antonio (Jaime Moreno) and Jose Luis (Jorge Rivero) are a pair of small-time crooks who are hoping to land a big score by robbing a safe, but run afoul of an armed security guard. Jose Luis is shot and taken to jail, but Antonio manages to escape unharmed, and he flees to a small island with his beautiful and provocatively named girlfriend, Erotica (Rebeca Silva). As their bankroll dwindles, Erotica finds herself supporting the household as her fugitive lover becomes increasingly lazy and non-ambitious. Jose Luis manages to escape from behind bars, and he makes his way to Antonio's hideout; while he initially stays there over Erotica's strong objections, he soon proves his strength and loyalty when he rescues her from a would-be rapist. Erotica soon finds herself attracted to her boyfriend's crony, and, in time, jealousy between the two men escalates into violence. Erotica was the final directorial effort from the acclaimed Mexican writer/actor/filmmaker Emilio Indio Fernandez. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Erotica

Terrible but every time it 's on I can't avoid watching it. It's TERRIBLE and what should be a drama, in fact makes you laugh out loud. A half star must see.
