Storyline

Tenso (Adrián Suar) doesn't know how to deal with his wife, Tana (Valeria Bertuccelli); how to tell her that he wants to separate because the relationship is a completely mess due to her terrible temper. She constantly lives in a bad mood: if she doesn't complain about the weather she does about the government; if she doesn't complain about the neighbors she does about the teenagers... or whatever. Carlos, a friend of Tenso, suggests him to invert the situation... and cause Tana to leave him. Tenso wonders how, and Carlos has a suggestion: to hire the Cuervo Flores (Gabriel Goity), an old irresistible seducer that will try to charm his wife until she falls in love with him, and so, the Tenso finally finds the solution to his problems...

This movie has beauty
15 September 2017 | by paulina-51518See all my reviews

This film starts as a comedy but it gets complex enough to stop laughing. The plot is very simple, the development of the characters is so natural, nothing is forced. The movie is better than I expected, I just fell in love with some scenes, the camera shots and the camera movements, the symmetry in the photography. There are not unnecessary camera shots, showing unnecessary perspectives for the understanding of the film. You know, Hollywood easy-made films use lots of silly changing camera shots that lots of times makes the film to lose its magic.

I might written in a weird English, but I saw the film was not over 7 and reading reviews it felt weird that nobody liked enough the photography to mention it. So I do. I Hope someone else could enjoy it.
