This movie is, by far the best argentine comedy ever filmed (OK, it does share that title with ESPERANDO LA CARROZA). Don't pay any attention to the rating: this story about a pregnant 18-year old girl, just rush out of high school and about to enter college, who has her so self-called "liberal and moderns" parents thinking she's a sweet little virginal angel, when she's in fact cheeding in her stupid boyfriend (who she is not sleeping with) with half the neighborhood. Alejandro Doria, who also directed ESPERANDO LA CARROZA, makes the film adaptiation of the stageplay by the same name one of the most brutal critics to the argentine middle-clase hipocresy, and to the family in general. It also has an incredible amount of fabolous, and completely halarious performances by Andrea del Boca, playing the Lidia, the pregnant girl, Norma Aleandro (who you might now from the 1984 best foreign picture Oscar winner THE OFFICIAL STORY, or from her rol in GABY, A TRUE STORY, wich gives her a nomination for supporting actress in 1987) as her mother, Luis Brandoni as her father, Dario Grandinetti as her innocent boyfriend, Federico Luppi as the father of the baby, Verónica Llinás as an silent maid, and many more. If you want to see a good argentine movie that will also make you think, you definitely have to go to the closest international video store and get this movie.
