"Y que sea lo que sea..."
13 May 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I read an article today about what Argentines think of our cinema, its actors and directors. The most remembered movie chosen by more than the half of the questioned was "Nine Queens", a film that was released in the US; the best director was between the latter film director and Juan José Campanella, who has also worked around the world. The undeniable choice for best actor was Ricardo Darin…The second choice was Diego Peretti.

Peretti, a medic and psychiatrist, has played psychologists over the last few years and in his more important recent works: "Tiempo de Valientes" and the mini series "Locas de amor". He was a character impersonator/investigator in "Los Simuladores", an incredible hit in Argentine television. Summering it up, he's taken part in a lot of the most important projects Argentina made during the last and this decade.

Which takes me to "No sos vos, soy yo", an inspiring and fresh comedy starring Peretti (as a medic; gynecologist) in top form. His character Javier is a very humble man, who is very in love with his girlfriend and is very willing to do anything for her; for example, getting married to get a Green Card and leave to the United States. But as I always say, you can't be so nice and good because you get screwed; and his wife Maria (a notorious Soledad Villamil) screwed Javier.

The tile of the film is a common phrase that everyone uses when break-ups occur: "It's not you…It's me". That's bullshit. However, it is much more interesting to watch it in married couples than in teenagers. So when Maria tells Javier that she doesn't want him to join her in the States, he yells at her: "What? I left my job, I sold my car, I got rid of my things…I'm moving to another country with you!" Women don't always get it: the sacrifice.

Now Javier starts his journey to "move on", something we believe may not happen, just because he mentions Maria to every individual he encounters. He goes to live with his parents, bothers his best friends (a married couple with kids) having dinner with them and he goes to see an analyst (a splendid appearance by Marcos Mundstock). He tries dating, but when he has sex with Lola (the beautiful Eugenia Toba), he can't handle it…No commitment.

Juan Taratuto directed the movie, which doesn't seem completely in order although it is very long. He chose simple observation for his camera and gave a lot of room for his actors to improvise. Since they are all good, it wasn't a problem and it makes the movie funnier, you will tell. The surprise in the cast and in the film comes from Cecilia Dopazo. The actress, always charming, appears late in the picture, but plays a key role; and she does it perfectly.

Dopazo also wrote the film alongside Taratuto. They understand each other and make a great team to develop a plot like this one. "No sos vos, soy yo" will appeal more to adults, they'll identify themselves with the situation so they'll enjoy the film from a different point of view. But it is a good piece.
