The Realm of the Senses, literally. Death and Desire are inextricably linked, in this Hispanic mix of sex, symbolism, violence and very chic design. Angel, a trainee bullfighter, is driven by his guilt about being a rapist to confess to the killings of a number of young men and women. But Angel’s mentor (retired from the corrida after having been gored by a bull) and his lady lawyer are far guiltier than he, since the ultimate orgasm can only be achieved by murder.
