Storyline

Tenso (Adrián Suar) doesn't know how to deal with his wife, Tana (Valeria Bertuccelli); how to tell her that he wants to separate because the relationship is a completely mess due to her terrible temper. She constantly lives in a bad mood: if she doesn't complain about the weather she does about the government; if she doesn't complain about the neighbors she does about the teenagers... or whatever. Carlos, a friend of Tenso, suggests him to invert the situation... and cause Tana to leave him. Tenso wonders how, and Carlos has a suggestion: to hire the Cuervo Flores (Gabriel Goity), an old irresistible seducer that will try to charm his wife until she falls in love with him, and so, the Tenso finally finds the solution to his problems...

He does not Deserve Her
28 September 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Buenos Aires, the smalltime merchant Diego "Tenso" Polsky (Adrián Suar) has a boring life with his unpleasant wife Andrea "Tana" Ferro (Valeria Bertuccelli), who is constantly in a bad mood. Tenso does not have courage to leave his wife, so his friend Carlos (Marcelo Xicarte) suggests him to force his wife to divorce him. They meet the womanizer Cuervo Flores (Gabriel Goity) and Tenso hires him to seduce his wife and gets a job for her in a small radio station.

Tana changes her behavior and her temper dating Flores and working in the radio station and her show becomes a hit. Meanwhile Tenso fall in love with her again but it is too late to keep their marriage.

"Un Novio para Mi Mujer" is a romantic drama wrongly labeled of romantic comedy. The story is original, but Adrián Suar and Gabriel Goity are miscast: Adrián Suar's character is a clumsy and unattractive man and Gabriel Goity's character does not have the look of a seducer. Tenso is a loser that does not deserve Tana, but the conclusion with an open end is perfect for the story. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Um Namorado Para Minha Esposa" ("A Boyfriend for My Wife")
