Synopsis: Alvin has just arrived in the big city. He lucks out and finds a small boarding house with an incredibly affordable rate. But he’s quickly scandalized by the other boarders’ cavalier attitudes about sex and masturbation. He’s horrified by his new roommates’ near constant nudity and penchant for all sorts of lewd activity. At first he tries to leave, but he soon grows to appreciate the kindness and openness of the people around him. And soon enough, with the help of some sort of herbal supplement, he joins in the fun. (From Philbert Dy’s review)

Running time: 70 mins.



1.5          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

1.0          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“Now, it’s an endless parade of genitals, with the technical merits of a dog with a camera on its head. It’s terribly disappointing, because I always want to give every film the benefit of the doubt. But they make that more difficult with every throwaway film that makes it into cinemas.” (Read full review)
