Alberto lives with his parents and his brother Roberto, quite attractive, who tells him there are lots of girls. Alberto is a romantic guy, and doesn't find a girl for his own. He knew he was in love as soon as he saw Maria, although he was not very sure of what she thought. His brother told him he would help with her, but things get difficult when Roberto also likes Maria.Written by
This is a quite comical movie about two brothers after the same girl. The situation is made funnier by its location at a family-owned furniture store in Spain (plenty of couches and beds around), and its outstanding cast. The siblings are played by Gabino Diego and Jorge Sanz, who have since this movie cemented their places as two of Spain's leading men. They are perfectly cast: Sanz, as always, the handsome, desirable stud, and Diego as his usual goofy, quirky self. Let's not forget the beautiful and talented Ariadne Gil (BELLE EPOQUE, SEGUNDA PIEL), who is the object of their affection.
