MADRID,1987 (2011): Gorilla Seduction of a Nubile

Madrid, 1987 (2011)
I peruse the Village Voice every Wednesday to see if there are any movies that are showing in Manhattan that are relevant to this blog. A review of Madrid, 1897 (2011) was recently written in America's largest weekly. The Spanish movie is about married ephebophile and journalist Miguel (José Sacristán) who takes Angela (María Valverde), a young journalism student, back to his artist friend's apartment to seduce her.
I wrote in The Allure of Nymphets and on this blog about the different strategies an ephebophile can use to seduce a nymphet. In Madrid, 1987, Miguel used the Gorilla approach, which is an aggressive style of seduction where the seducer unabashedly commands his subject to submit  to his commands. For example, instead of asking Angela to take off her clothes, Miguel told her, "I'd like you to take off your clothes..." 

And Miguel wasn't needy i.e., he didn't allow Angela to use him for his knowledge and not expect something in return. For instance, he asked, "We are gonna fuck, aren't we?" Miguel's behavior was unlike many men who would be happy to just be in the company of a nymphet, and wouldn't have the wherewithal to even attempt to seduce her. 

However, Miguel committed a seduction faux paus when he used the pronoun "I" too much in his desire to share his views on literature, writing, art and politics instead of being charming and using the Bounce Back Technique* that Cabane related in The Charisma Myth to allow Angela to share her views.

*Bounce Back Technique:

  1. Answer any question with a fact
  2. Add a personal note
  3. Redirect the question 


For example:

Angela:
"Do you like museums?" Question

Miguel:
"I hate museums." Fact 
"They don't let you touch and they don't smell anymore." Personal Note 
"How do you feel about museums? Redirection
