El placer es mío

The Pleasure Is Mine

Elisa Miller

In her second feature, Elisa Miller pulls no punches and opens with a sex scene, which immediately explains the title of the film, The Pleasure is Mine. The young couple Rita and Mateo are obviously enjoying themselves, hidden away in their house in the middle of the Mexican countryside, playful and in love. But they haven’t taken account of life. In fragments of that modest life, Miller shows how, slowly but surely, the cracks arise.
Because maybe the two started living together a little too early. Rita’s desire to have children conflicts with Mateo's taciturn nature and fear of commitment. And then there are also the unexpected visits: Mateo's attractive, flirting female cousin who sets his heart aflame or Rita's conservative mother who would rather see her daughter come back to the city. In subtle scenes, Miller confirms the promise of her debut and reveals how lust controls our lives just under the surface.
