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...

a couple of buenos dias in Buenos Aires
8 October 2009 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen any Argentinian movies before, but "Un novio para mi mujer" ("A Boyfriend for My Wife" in English) is a good start. It focuses on a bored man who hires a man to woo his mildly nutty wife away from him, only to realize how much he actually loves her.

It's not the greatest movie, but I like getting to see cultures that we don't often see (Argentina has to have more of a reputation than the place where Mark Sanford had an affair). And I do think that the movie does a good job focusing on relationships. It is one that I would recommend.

So just remember what to think the next time that you listen to the radio in Buenos Aires.
