In this sly Mexican sex comedy, a manipulative mama deftly manages the life of her homosexual son so that he can have his cake and eat it too. A woman of means, she does this by allowing her son, a doctor, to tryst in her home with his lover. Putting her son’s happiness above all else, she then arranges a marriage of convenience to a woman. When the marriage is consummated, the young male lover gets terribly jealous and this creates problems until the irrepressible Doña Herlinda again gets involved.
Jaime Humberto Hermosillo (born January 22, 1942) is a Mexican film director, often compared to Spain’s Pedro Almodóvar.
Born in Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes, in center Mexico, Hermosillo’s films often explore the hypocrisy of middle-class Mexican values.
He worked with Gabriel García Márquez on “Mary My Dearest” in 1979 and “The Summer of Miss Forbes” in 1988.
Hermosillo currently teaches film-making at the University of Guadalajara and has recently collaborated with his students on various projects. —Wikipedia
I found that this film shares some interesting connections to Deep Crimson (1996). It portrays the men as powerful, virile, and machos. But they give the control of their lives over to women, and somehow it doesn't render them any less manly. Maybe it's a trend explored by Mexican filmmakers during this epoch. I don't know too much, but it seems like an interesting topic to study.
