Laura, a young journalist living an isolated life in a cramped Mexico City flat, is not lucky in love. The banality of her daily life stands in stark contrast to her nightly pursuit of sex and love. These short-lived affairs barely take the edge off her isolation, but then she meets the brooding, would-be actor Arturo. Their chemistry ignites feelings in Laura that leave her deeply troubled. The two embark on an increasingly dangerous sadomasochistic relationship in which pleasure, pain and love merge. Their physical relationship seems headed for a very dark place as her secret past resurfaces, pushing Arturo to the limit in this intense, powerful and at times deeply unsettling movie.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Shocks only with its candor and complete lack of dramatic manipulation.
Fresh: "Leap Year" might be too much for some audiences, but it is a potent and surprising work.
Fresh: It's a gripping, mysterious use of no-budget cinema at its finest, and an intimate character study with surprising emotional power.
Fresh: There are trifling signs of freshmanship, but also a steady observant eye, and in the end Leap Year bears heartbreaking witness to hopeless depression, isolation, and the failure of sex as few movies ever have.
Orginal and spicy!
Very simple, yet facinating indie flix. I could really relate to the character and her situations. If lots of nudity and sex is offensive to you, dont watch, but its a nice little film with a human spark.
Chafa y mediocre
En mi vida habia visto una pelicula tan chafa y mediocre como esta! Yo me veo y actuo mejor que los que salen ahi y ya ni decir de la "leading role actress"....noooo! Mames! Directito al Oscar, pero de Tepito!! No sirve ni como trama ni sirve para verla por morbo! Todo a medias! Ni lo que pague! Mala,mala!!!
