The Perfect Crime (Crimen ferpecto)
Black comedy abounds in this tale of a self-obsessed department store employee (lord of the Ladies' Department) who longs to beat out rival, Don Antonio, manager of Men's, for the floor manager position. Rafael fantasizes about his perfect life of refinement, elegance and sophistication. His worst nightmare is to live a mediocre life surrounded by kids and curtains that match the sofa. But, how to reach his goal? When Rafael and Don Antonio get into a heated argument something terrible happens and Lourdes, a lowly clerk who Rafael doesn't much care for, witnesses the incident and begins to blackmail Rafael. Suddenly Rafael's dreams are dashed, and he is living the vulgar life he abhors. Now, there is nothing left to do but get rid of Lourdes in what must amount to... The Perfect Crime.
