"El Beso De La Mujer Arana" es una elegante y fascinante historia sobre el amor y la victimizacion. En una carcel argentina, dos hombres comparten una celda: Molina, un disenador de escaparates homosexual que es egoista, auto-denigrante y al mismo tiempo encantador; y Valentin, un revolucionario articulado y ferozmente dogmatico obsesionado con la memoria de la mujer que abandono por la causa. Ambos son gradualmente transformados por su cautelosa pero creciente amistad y por la obsesion de Molina con la fantasia y el romance del cine.

"Kiss of the Spider Woman" is an elegant and fascinating story about love and victimization. Argentina in a prison, two men share a cell: Molina, a designer of homosexual storefronts that is selfish, self-demeaning and at the same time charming; and Valentin, an articulate and fiercely dogmatic revolutionary obsessed with the memory of the woman who abandoned the cause. Both are gradually transformed by his cautious but growing friendship and Molina's obsession with the fantasy and romance film.
