PERFECT CRIME (EL CRIMEN PERFECTO), 2005, Vitagraph Films, 105 min. Alex de la Iglesia (THE DAY OF THE BEAST, PERDITO DURANGO, LA COMMUNIDAD) returns with a new black comedy. Guillermo Toledo (THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BED) stars as the Don Juan of a big Madrid department store -- an ambitious ladies department clerk who longs to become FLOOR MANAGER… The sexy salesgirls take turns spending the evening with Rafael in the department store after hours. He wines and dines them in fancy clothes borrowed from the racks followed by wild sex in the beds in the furniture department. Rafael will do anything to ace out the competition for the Floor Manager positon. His chief rival? Don Antonio (Luis Varela), manager of the Men's Department. The two face off, their total sales will determine who gets the promotion.

Warning! Do not read on unless you want to know plot details that may spoil your enjoyment of the films!

The unbelievable happens... Don Antonio wins. He uses his position to put Rafael in his place. The two argue and Don Antonio is accidentally killed. Now Rafael must dispose of the body. He manages to get it into the incinerator room, but when he leaves the basement for a few minutes, the body disappears...

So instead of achieving the sophisticated lifestyle he yearns for, Rafael's mistake leads him into an unfortunate situation with a witness to the crime… an unattractive, unsophistocated saleswoman with a longstanding crush on him. When she blackmails him into marrying her, his dreams of an elegant life dissipate into the vulgar reality of an ordinary existence - his only release is to commit the “ferpect” crime - get rid of her and escape from her clutches. He hatches an elaborate plan, but will it work?


"Like the Ferris wheel that serves as the setting for one of its climactic scenes, "El Crimen Perfecto" is a bright, gaudy and tremendously satisfying ride."

Dana Stevens
