A great comedy of sexes about argentina´s male chauvinism, sexism and airhead macho pride.
12 February 2002 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Alberto Olmedo was a unique performer. He started his acting career by accident, without thinking twice. An amazing improv player, Olmedo was a perfect 10 while acting on TV. At the same time he made an average of two movies a year. Sadly, his acting skills were lost in the big screen. Anyway, he made a couple of amazing pictures ("Una Jaula no Tiene Secretos", "La Aventuras del Capitán Piluso", "Los Caballeros de la Cama Redonda"), before becoming a raising star. By 1970 his name was widely recognized and way above the title. Three years later one production company, "Producciones Cinematograficas Aries", partnered him with another rising comediant, Jorge Porcel. They made more than 20 pictures together, but "Aries" tried very hard to make hits with each guy working solo. "Mi Novia el..." ("My girlfriend, him...") was a nice and very humorous screenplay by playwright and TV writer Oscar Viale. Written in a very italian comedy style, the screenplay was about a blue collar guy falling in love with a girl disguised as a tranvestite. If you have seen the peninsular comedy of screenwriters Age and Scarpelli, well, "Mi Novia el..." was written in the same tune. Olmedo is great as the guy, as well argentina´s own Marilyn Monroe, Susana Gimenez, who plays the girl. The movie ran with censorship problems because of it´s title and subject matter, until "Aries" decided to change the selling angle.

The film was directed by veteran hack Enrique Cahen Salaberry, an undistingished filmmaker who helmed more than 50 awful movies until 1985. But, surprisingly, the film was a brilliant piece, and a hit - with the almost the same plot as "Victor, Victoria" made six years later.

A comedy of sexes about argentina´s male chauvinism, sexism and airhead macho pride. An obscure gem about to be discovered. Believe it or not.
