“El Crimen Perfecto,” the latest from ace Spanish helmer Alex de la Iglesia (DAY OF THE BEAST), premieres in Los Angeles, Saturday, August 20 – 9:30 PM, at the Egyptian Theatre.
Guillermo Toledo (THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BED) stars as the Don Juan of a big Madrid department store. In between after-hours sexual romps with a rotating pool of sexy salesgirls, this ambitious ladies department clerk competes for the coveted Floor Manager position with his hated rival, the manager of Men’s Wear… Rafael will do anything to ace out the competition, but instead of getting the job he yearns for, he makes a big mistake… which is witnessed by an unattractive, unsophisticated saleswoman, Lourdes (Monica Cervera) with a longstanding crush on him. When she blackmails him into marrying her, his dreams of an elegant life are swallowed up by the vulgar reality of an ordinary existence – and his only way to escape from her clutches is to commit the “ferpect” crime … Premiere Party for all ticket buyers prior to the show. Discussion following with director Alex de la Iglesia.
