The Kiss (El Beso)

201412 mins

What do you do when your best friend shows up at your front door asking you to kiss him?

Daniel just wants an honest, sober appraisal of how he kisses. Ale is unconvinced. Is a kiss between friends ever “just a kiss”?

What was meant to be a quiet night in doing laundry quickly becomes a thorough deconstruction of Ale and Daniel's friendship in this Mexican adaptation of American playwright Mark Harvey Levine's short play The Kiss — an honest look at the ridiculously complicated nature of friendship across the gender divide.
