KIKI, LOVE TO LOVE
KIKI, EL AMOR SE HACE
2016, Strand Releasing, 102 min, Dir: Paco León

Through interwoven stories, five couples revel in and struggle with sexual fetishes in one of Spain’s biggest box office hits of the year. Actor-director Paco León’s (CARMINA OR BLOW UP) kinky comedy recalls the uninhibited spirit of Pedro Almodóvar with a knack for hilarious set pieces that is uniquely his own. “Throughout, KIKI skillfully straddles the line between the comedy you’d expect and the compassion which makes it work at a deeper level.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter. In Spanish with English subtitles.
