The film “Lecciones para un beso” from the young Colombian director Juan Pablo Bustamante is a romantic comedy that premiered in movie theaters in his native country and broke box office records. The film tells the story of Alejandro’s life, a teenager in Bogota who is forced to move to Cartagena where his mother decides to open a restaurant. There, he falls in love with María, a stunning young girl, and intends to try everything possible in order to give her a kiss. Inexperienced in love, Alejandro asks three clients in his mother’s restaurant for help — a romantic, a liar and a materialist — to teach him how to win María over. The men accept not only to help the boy, but they also make a bet among themselves to see whose advice ends in the kiss.

"Lecciones Para Un Beso" is a romantic comedy that the guys might enjoy. Bustamante, explains, 'It is the perfect Valentine's movie, especially for the guys. This is a story, a romantic comedy for men with more emphasis on the guy side of the story. It is more about how the guys think to court girls.' This unique perspective is what drew Bustamante to the film, 'I like romantic comedies, but they are usually made with this one point of view. Maybe we need to show a good male way of falling in love.'

Talleres Uchawi produces Colombian independent films dedicated to the creation of audiovisual works that combine artistic and commercial elements with quality universal stories. One of the documentaries shot by this production house, Cartagena de Indias: Una historia de cinco elementos, won first prize at the Third Exhibition of New Artists at the 43rd Edition of the Cartagena Film Festival and has sold over twenty-five thousand copies.
