Between comedy and drama
9 August 2005 | by abisioSee all my reviews

NO SOS VOS, SOY YO (It's not you, it's me) is about an Javier and Maria, middle age Argentinean couple, living in a dangerous monotony, that decide to move to USA looking for better opportunities. Maria travels first, and few weeks later, announces Javier (her husband) that she had met somebody. The matrimony is over, and so is Javier's life. The movie comically (but sometimes very sour) documents his actions trying to overcome his depression about his failure in life, future and relationship.

The movie stands above almost every recent (failed) love history recently in cinema; mostly because it does a great effort to avoid common places and situations. Dialogs and situations are very realistic but funny. Sadly, many of the best jokes will be very difficult to understand without knowledge of the Argentinean Spanish. Ultimately, are the writers (one of them is the only good woman in the movie) who give up and go for the easy way out; probably to satisfy most of the public.

However, the main problem with the story is the main character. Diego Peretti is a very good actor (as is Soledad Villasmil, as the cheating wife), but his character is too real for his own good. It is unpleasant and very very difficult to like; making very difficult to feel any kind of sympathy for a person that you can bear even on the screen.

Overall, the movie is not bad at all. It is not an easy comedy but a light and finally optimistic drama.
