A man catches his girlfriend cheating on him with his boss, and gets fired because of this. When he finds his boss cheating on his ex-girlfriend, he blackmails him, but things will end up upside-down, when a murder shows up.
Because of his boss Mallarino, Nicolas has lost his girlfriend Margarita, and his job. One year later, after deciding on getting revenge, he tries to black mail Mallarino with photos of him and his lover. Things get complicated when Mallarino, instead of paying, offers him more money to kill Margarita.Written by

I recognize that out of prejudice I denied the 10th star to "bluff", because it resembles many thrillers that I have seen before. But at the same time I admit that it is a very funny film, especially for a Spanish-speaking person; that thankfully it is not another drug-related movie from Colombia; and that it keeps you interested without nudity, sex scenes or car chases, although the whole story revolves around killing a woman whose husband considers her an obstacle to his affair with a model. This comedy may have been made by producers of commercials and video clips, but I would be a liar if I'd say that I did not enjoy it. The big discovery is Federico Lorusso as Nicolás (or Nicolito as his landlady calls him), who also composed the music. It is a bit confusing at first because of his Argentinean accent in a Colombian film, but with his character being a photographer, anything can happen in the advertising and publishing worlds. Enjoy it if it ever comes your way.
