Maxi owns one of the most popular restaurants in the gay-friendly neighborhood of Chueca. But while Maxi is currently out of the closet, that doesn't mean that he doesn't have anything to hide.

    One of the cutest, funniest film I've seen!! Javier Camara's performance was stunning. The script was really cleve, definitely a film worth watching for. The film consists of a simple outline with some elements to give the audience an uneasy feeling between the moral dilemmas that blended in with some comedy, it's a good film for mature audience.

    Think of it as the Spanish and Gay equivalent of Mostly Martha or No Reservations. Same plot, same twists and turns--just in Spanish and with a gay protagonist. However, this movie does enjoy having a lighter structure and more droll situations. Javier Camara (you'll remember him as the male nurse in Almodovar's 'Talk to Her') is outrageously funny without being too over-the-top. His performance is engaging and nuanced enough to provide diversion to the audience as well as depth to a character that could've become very boring and one-dimensional had it been played by an inferior actor. I got to see this last night at the San Diego Latino Film Festival. It's definitely worth the extra effort trying to find a theater near you that may be playing this--or waiting for the DVD.
