A FILM BY Emilio Martinez Lazaro

... a warmblooded Spanish sex comedy. [a] freewheeling mixture of romantic comedy and song and dance...

Racy romantic farce meets pop musical in Spain's box-office smash The Other Side of the Bed (El otro lado de la cama), an effervescent comedy set in modern Madrid. The film follows the intertwining and increasingly complicated love lives of two couples, who give voice to their roiling emotions in spontaneous bursts of song and dance. Award-winning filmmaker Emilio Martínez-Lázaro (What Max Said, His Master's Voice) directs a delicious cast of acclaimed young performers, including Paz Vega (Talk To Her, Sex and Lucia), Natalia Verbeke (Jump Tomorrow, dot the i), Ernesto Alterio (Deseo aka Beyond Desire) and Guillermo Toledo (Intacto), Alberto San Juan (Insomnio) and María Esteve (Nada en la nevera aka Nothing in the Fridge).
