In Buenos Aires, a con job brings together Heriberto, an innocent from the sticks, and Cynthia, a blond knockout. Both aspire to act, and when Cynthia tries suicide, Heriberto becomes her protector, working behind the scenes to jumpstart her career. Through a comedy of errors, he comes to the attention of a studio head, who agrees to give Cynthia a role in a soap if Heriberto will become his boyfriend. Heriberto reluctantly accepts, and when Cynthia lands a role, she thinks her patron is an executive who assaulted her after a party. Mistakes and misunderstandings mount: can she make it as a star; can Heriberto keep his end of the bargain; and, will she figure out who loves her? Written by
I caught this movie on cable the other night. I hadn't actually intended to watch it but the female lead is exceptionally attractive and caught my eye so I started watching and I'm glad I did. Generally, subtitled comedies don't make the transition to other languages as well as other films. Language and cultural nuances often get lost in the translation. The humour in this film is simple and often visual and little to nothing gets lost. The plot involves a simple young man who has moved to the big city to try and make it as an actor. He meets a beautiful struggling actress and becomes smitten by her and goes well beyond the call to help her with her career. This isn't a cerebral comedy; it's just funny. On top of that, Claudia Albertario is stunning.
