In Santiago, Chile, the efficient architect Amanda finds that her boyfriend Pepe is cheating on her with her friend Fernanda. Amanda threats them both with a shotgun, but is arrested and loses her job. She travels to Valparaiso and decides to disguise as an ugly woman married with children to earn respect by the men. Amanda is hired by Max to work at his company with the chauvinist wolf Marcelo; the dedicated but limited family man Guillermo; and the ambitious just graduated architect Karen. Soon she proves to be very efficient and decides to give a lesson to Marcelo, seducing him posing as the sexy Helena. Meanwhile Marcelo gets closer to Amanda that becomes his best female friend and advisor. When Helena humiliates Marcelo, he changes his behavior and falls in love with Amanda. And she also falls for him, but she is behind the eight ball with the situation she has created. Meanwhile Karen hits on Marcelo that is emotionally vulnerable.Written by

I was really impressed by many things in Pretendiendo. First: Barbara Mori's amazing transformation. I know it is not uncommon to see beautiful girls turn into not so beautiful ones with the help of some make up, but turning the real Amanda (Mori) into the not-so-even-gracious-Amanda, had to be quite a challenge. At some point you won't be able to relate the real Amanda with the transformed one. Then you have Marcelo (played by Marcelo Mazzarelo, Mori's counterpart), one would think he is the average casanova, but he's far from that, he's witty, funny, he has the best lines, and also the weirdest (and funniest) relationship theories, he keeps on making you laugh all through the movie. This movie offers talent: breathtaking Chilean landscapes in every take, great acting, great jokes, great direction and Barbara Mori "as you never seen her before".
