Ana is a rich, repressed housewife. Much to her annoyance, her husband rents out their garden to a soap-opera production, and goes away on a business trip. In her dull solitude, Ana follows the shooting from her window, and soon becomes just as engrossed in the soap-opera as her two maids. When accidentally mistaken for an actress, she ends up being cast for a role -to the great dismay of the other actresses and her maids. The set soon becomes dominated by gossiping, intrigues and blackmail, while the boundary between her real world and the make believe world of soap-operas begins to blur. Ana finds herself entangled in a real life soap-opera all of her own when she tries to get everything back to normal before her husbands comes home.Written by
The idea is pretty simple. When an oligarch Peruvian family rent their garden for the filming of a soap opera, the soap opera starts to take control of everybody's life. Ana, the bored wife, takes advantage of her husband absence to get a part in the program. And that is when things start to get complicated. The relation between Ana and the maids is incredible. Rebecca Raez as the revolutionary maid is so funny. If you watch the film because of Angie Cepeda you will be disappointed because she only has a very small part. The only critic I have to the movie is that they take the chicken joke too far.
I could not stop laughing when I saw it the first time!!! Great cinematographic work. Its sad the movie had very little distribution. If you are able to get your hands into this movie, watch it, you wont be disappointed.
