Jornada de Puertas Abiertas

A married couple strikes to overcome a crisis through swinging.

Film notes

A drama disguised as a comedy where characters will face their most intimate fears, unveiling the deficiencies of a common life.

“Jornada de Puertas Abiertas” (Open House) tells the story of the end of a
relationship in a last attempt to keep it alive.
After 23 years of marriage, Carmen and Nacho decide to become "swingers" to try
and solve their marital problems. Confronting this will clearly show the distance
between them and just how much their relationship has deteriorated.
A decadent retro atmosphere, symbolising the damages caused by living together,
contrasts with the fantasy images of the male lead, which reflect his fears and
insecurities.
The unspoken desires, repression, and freedom of the pair, in sharp contrast to a
marriage of traditional values, transform this short film into a drama disguised as a
comedy, which raises a profound question: how far are we prepared to go to please
our partner? and a response which shows the bitterest side of reality: there are
some lines which we only cross when it is all over.
