That Queens is quite proudly a piece of fluff is evident from its opening scene, a forbidden tryst in a train bathroom. The encounter's comedic elements override all possible eroticism, from the exaggerated flirting that precedes it, to the helpful seat-mate who answers a stranger's cell phone and finds herself standing outside the bathroom door shouting messages to the phone's slightly distracted owner. The scene is shot in bright, candy-colors and features a timely split screen, used to enhance the comedy; both elements -- the latter joined by other editing gimmicks including wipes and fades -- reappear again and again through the film, a sprawling story of the first gay wedding in Spain, and the families involved.
