Live Flesh (Carne trémula)

Carne trémula I watched "Live Flesh" (Carne trémula). I love it!

The story is surrounding the young Victor who was born on a bus to a prostitute. After he grows up, one night, he goes back to a girl who he had sex with for a second date. But the girl doesn't acknowledge the dating promise. The argument leads him into jail. After he gets out, he doesn't give up on the girl and those who put him in jail. He comes back to these people as close as he can.

From the first scene of Victor is born on a bus, I am hooked with this film. I loved how the camera moves and tells us a story in a very personal way. The film is also wickedly funny and sexy. If Pedro Almodóva were making a porn flick, I would be the first one to buy, because he knows how to shoot a sex scene so erotic and so exciting and so compelling, even it's a straight sex scene.

I am so glad that this is part of the re-release of "Viva Pedro." "Live Flesh" deserves to be seen on a big screen with a new print.

My rating: 8 out of 10.
