Amantes (Lovers) is a shocking, erotic thriller - based on a sensational true crime story - from director Vicente Aranda. In 1950's Madrid, Paco is a handsome young man engaged to Trini, an innocent young woman who has amassed a considerable savings for her eventual marriage. While in search of a job, Paco rents a room from Luisa, an exotic and worldly widow (Victoria Abrill) and beings a torrid affair with her. Luisa's sexual hold on Paco is so strong that she soon convinces him to kill Trini, steal her money, and run off with her. But can Paco break free from her control before it's too late?
The "Lethally, deliciously erotic" (San Francisco Chronicle) Victoria Abril ( High Heels) stars as Luisa in this sexually-charged drama that was honored with the 1991 Goya Award for Best Film and Best Director.
