In an interview conducted with its director by the Spanish film production company, Filmax, she expressed that the film is based on family history, of the past, of lies, of guilt and full of conflicts. According to her, the sun in Madrid, the heat and the contrast with the darkness of the characters create a simple but at the same time elegant and clean film.
“The story had a lot of darkness in its visual part and we didn’t want to focus only on a gay couple with a common problem. Therefore, we always used the idea of the triangle, since, if the protagonist’s sister appeared, she would position herself in a place that would break up the couple”.
He added that, in the film, it seems that his characters do things for a natural or normal motivation, but it is not true, since each one has their own interests. He also expressed: “It is a hot movie since it is surrounded by the hottest month in Madrid, in addition to many naked bodies and a lot of desire.”
