Product Description

Product Description

When his father dies, grief-stricken 19-year-old Eloy begins an unusual habit of sleepwalking. One night, stumbling across rooftops in a daze, he accidentally tumbles into the open window of his beautiful neighbor, Elvira - nine years his senior. Her intense desire for Eloy is heightened by her studies of tantric sex techniques and quickly she takes him as her willing pupil. Entwined by destiny, the two are soon exploring hidden realms of eroticism the young man never knew existed...as she opens his eyes to the possibilities of lovemaking, he's introduced to new worlds that allow him to leave his body and travel through time and space.

Review

"a rare film that manages to be funny and erotic at once. " -- Ben Sachs, Cine-File

"charming wet dream of a movie. Hot, young Argentines on an ambitious regimen of athletic--and emotionally healing--debauchery." -- Ruth Welte, TIME OUT CHICAGO

If you are only going to watch one foreign erotic film this year, then Don't Look Down is perhaps the perfect example of the beauty and quality of this genre. Set in Argentina, it maintains an incredible balance among humour, pathos, spirituality, and eroticism. Beautifully photographed, it tells the story of Eloy who falls (literally) into the arms of Elvira, who becomes both his spiritual and sexual mentor. The erotic scenes are absolutely stunning as Elvira schools Eloy in the ancient art of Taoist sexual practices. There is nothing gratuitous in these scenes but sheer natural and graceful lovemaking. This film is indeed a work of art, not solely because of its cinematography and well-constructed plot, but also because of its brilliant writing which is well-illustrated in the line "Life is full of goodbyes but you never stop loving." This is a film that you will want to watch again and again.

This film from Argentina is sexually explicit, with many scenes of nudity and love making. In a way it looks like a soft-porn film, but one with a good plot and good acting. So it is an art-house piece for adults. The leading actress is pretty to look at too.

This movie takes on a passionate and sexual art form that is different from other movies in this category. Erroticism was not the main factor but the art of love-making....excellent!

Tender Love Story May 11 2009
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a tender love story between a young 19 year old inexperienced boy Eloy and a wise 28 year old woman Elvira. Eloy's father has died and he begins sleepwalking. His brother sets traps for him so that he will wake up and stop sleepwalking. Instead Eloy walks the roofs off buildings and eventually falls into Elvira's bed through her open skylight. From there the whole sexual awakening and teaching happens. Eventually they fall deeply in love and the story ends happily ever after.

In a way, this sounds like a wonderful, sweet movie that most would enjoy. Sadly, it's pretty far from what happens in the film. The viewer is treated to some pretty awful film techniques, needless slow motion, bad editing, over use of tracking shots, and just plain poor story telling.

To read the marketing description a person would think this is a treatise on the Kama Sutra and Tantric. It is so not that at all. Yes there are very very intimate scenes, these two lovers are very handsome without their clothes on. But an exploration of these two techniques? What we are treated to is a count down by Elvira. How many times can Eloy thrust before his nirvana? We see this scene played over and over again with Eloy becoming obsessed with that count - he has to reach 81! The pay off is him being mentally transported to a new city whenever he's reached between 80 and 100. This is no joke, that's exactly what is said in the film.

The film is supposed to have some mystic level. Eloy communicates with his dead father. He rides his bike through a cemetary every day and the dead line up doing hand motions to him, which, well, vaguely resemble the motion of self pleasuring. The Grandmother is some mystic able to see auras arounnd people. And Eloy and Elvira seem to have some mystic ESP connection. Frankly, it kind of all boils down to a pretext to see these two lovely people in bed. Of which there is roughly 1/3 of the film at this state, beautifully photographed.

The film is all about expectations. It is very far from a study of the Kama Sutra or the art of Tantra. Nobody will learn anything from what is in this film (there are many more infintitely more educational films than this one). If the viewer expects some elementary exploration of mystic ideas, a semi-sweet coming of age / love story, and doesn't mind intimate movies then they may well love this film. It was a bit too sophomoric for me.

The film is not rated by the MPAA. It has an R rating in Canada. As noted, roughly 1/3 of the film is of two people naked, making love or talking about love making, with full frontal nudity. There are no views of penetration or a male losing his seed (to quote the film). There's no violence. The infrequent use of strong language, mostly related to sexual acts in context.

Tantric and erotic Oct. 18 2010
By Ian Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a delicate film. It starts with the young male protagonist and subtly shifts to the female. She proceeds to educate him in the tantric and therefore, the spiritual side of love making. The erotic scenes are just that but from an entirely gentle perspective. There is an undertone concerning his relationship to his dead father. While, from one argument, appearance is a superficial concern, films are first and foremost, a visual experience. She is stunning. He is a suitable counterpart. The movie was a real pleasure to watch.

Don't look down but don't look away July 16 2011
By Richard A. Dehart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I watch a movie of this genre I am looking for bare breasts and as expicit sex as I can get. The main actress in this film is beautiful. And she has excitingly beautiful breasts. They are rather small but I prefer them small. The film is ubiquitous with her nude scenes, much to my delight. The film is punctuated with sensual nearly explicit sex scenes. If you have to have explicit, go rent a copy of Caligula or the Brown Bunny. Any of you reading this know of any other explicit films of this genre, please enlighten me. The film has an odd storyline but is not boring and even interesting at times. Oh yes there is a leading guy in this. He walks around on stilts, thus the title don't look down. For you guys with other proclivities, he shows his dork several times. The movie is enjoyable, well acted and most importantly, has lots of nudity.
If you are ever thinking of buying a film of this sort, see if Amazon offers a trailer. It might give you some idea if you'll like it. If you are still not sure, you might be able to rent the film for a couple of bucks and watch it right on your computer screen. Enjoy

Mixed up- whatr happens when the writer and director do not know what they want Oct. 23 2011
By Harold A. Fretheim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There are things to like about this movie. The basic plot idea perfectly OK- and the actors are good. But in fact this movie is more than a bit of a mess. a lot of unneeded material was added in some sort of efort to make the story seem deeper in a sort of mystical sense- when in fact the added matter really just gets in the way.

Depends on use July 11 2010
By Colby Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you're looking for something with a plot to masturbate to, this film is no good at all. I had to skip around to all the 'good stuff' and it was just way too complicated. This has nudity and stuff, but there's way too much of a story line if you just need something to relax your self with.
