Synopsis

A very inhabitual encounter of two very different men who are sharing a Brazilian prison cell : Valentin Arregui (Raúl Juliá), who is imprisoned (and has been tortured) due to his activities on behalf of a leftist revolutionary group, and Luis Molina (William Hurt) a homosexual in prison for having sex with an underage boy. A complex and universal story of friendship and love, Kiss of the Spider Woman explores the enforced relati onship — through imprisonment — of two men with radically different perspectives on life. Molina, an openly homosexual windowtrimmer, entertains his revolutionary cellmate with fanciful narratives drawn from some of his favorite movies. William Hurt won the Best Actor in Cannes and Oscar for his tremendous interpretation.
