Eleven episodes portray different encounters in a large city during the course of a single night towards the end of the millennium. A young man wants to stop living together with a young woman because he believes that they no longer have anything to say to each other. The young woman goes to visit her mother, an elderly woman. She lives with an old lesbian who meets her homeless brother. She asks him to forgive her for having seduced his wife all those years ago, but the brother pretends not to know who she is. A young boy attacks the homeless man. At first he tells him about his wild nights, then he knocks him to the ground and steals the old man''s ring. At home the young boy has a bath and asks his father to join him in the tub. The boy''s father has a girlfriend, a young woman. He intends to end their relationship... Eleven interlocking scenes that involve two characters, one of whom carries forward into the next scene, until the chain comes full circle.

Love it or hate it. I love it. It''s different.
by Alex Hernandez
When I saw this film, most of the people in the room just hated it. Why?
Well, "Caresses" is a play on screen. Hollywood is galaxies away. And so is Broadway.
"Caresses" is made up of a series of dialogues. The tense relationship between two characters (lovers, relatives...) gets to a breaking point and the audience are witnesses of the crisis. The scene ends and an interlude of fast-forwarded images of Barcelona at night takes us and one of the characters to the next encounter.
Most people considered all this quite repetitive, meaningless, and boring.
In my opinion, the combination of these apparently unconnected scenes is a deep, moving analysis of life in the city, of love relationships in the nineties, and most of all, on loneliness - lack of love, and search for tenderness.
Love it or hate it, this film is conceptually very simple, but indeed very different to anything you''ve seen before.
