Storyline

Marga is having a streak of bad luck. Through her friendship with Rosa, she tries to regain her self-confidence, but love interests again create conflict. It is while developing a relationship with a handsome gay sculptor ten years her junior: Iñaqui, that she starts to improve. However, Marga and Iñaqui go beyond friendship, but are frustrated by their limitations. Ultimately, the two may have to settle for an "impossible" love relationship, as their unique best road to happiness. Written by ElianaG

Surviving a love affair.
15 February 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Alfonso Albacete and David Menkes, the directors of this movie, want us to believe that a gay man can live a life of a straight person if only he meets the right woman, which seems to be the point of this comedy. "Sobrevivire", while not a horrible film, by any means, answers its own question when at the end, the young man can't resist the attraction of another man, leaving the unhappy woman to deal with her new reality by herself.

Marga, the young woman at the center of this picture sees her whole life change when Roberto, the love of her life, falls asleep at the wheel killing himself and almost causing her death. To make matters worse, Marga loses a nice job because her friend, who is having an affair with one of the bosses, wants her out of the picture. What's a beautiful woman of no means to do? Open a video rental place!

Marga meets Inaqui one day at the video store she is now running. It's obvious he likes her too, but little prepares us to realize that Inaqui has another life, a gay one, at that. He likes Marga, and she feels the attraction too. They become lovers until one day Inaqui sees his former boyfriend and goes back to his old life. The story is hard to believe.

Emma Suarez is a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, this film doesn't do anything for her. Juan Diego Botto, another handsome actor, does whatever he can, in a role that sounds fake from beginning to end.
