  • Summary: Daniel (Cuervo) is a middle-aged, gay man who comes from an established family and lives a charmed, middle-class existence. He is a "regular" of Madrid's gay bar scene sometimes hunting for good-looking, young foreigners. At one of these bars, he meets Kyril (Beba), a hunky 23-year-old Bulgarian. After a night of animalistic passion, Daniel is under his Eastern European spell. Wild, reckless and slightly dangerous, Kyril seems to turn Daniel's conservative and rather predictable life upside down. (TLA Releasing) Expand

  1. Sly, swift, succinct -- and very sexy.
  2. Reviewed by: David Stratton
    Full of charm, entertaining enough as it unfolds, good looking, but not especially memorable in retrospect.
  3. Superbly acted, without a trace of coyness and with considerable heat.
  4. 60
    All in all it's pretty lurid, but it delivers what it promises.
  5. Eloy de la Iglesia, who directed Bulgarian Lovers, has a light and witty touch, reminiscent of his countryman Pedro Almodóvar...But he needed a better screenplay.
  6. Ultimately suffers from an overabundance of plot and a paucity of depth, but it does provide some fleeting comic pleasures along the way.
  7. 25
    The gay sex scenes that punctuate Eloy de la Iglesia's limp Spanish comedy, Bulgarian Lovers, are frequent and graphic, and it often seems as if the lackluster story exists solely to showcase them.
