A Boyfriend for My Wife

Synopsis: 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...

l rang 3 times today

and she couldn't speak.

First she was with the masseuse,

then she was in the shower.

And the next time she'd gone out.

What do you say to that?

l reckon that

since her husband was made manager...

he thinks we are not good enough.

He won't lether talk.

He doesn't let her.

That's not how we brought her up.

Not to worryabout us?

Come on!

What l'd like to know is

how much he's on now he's a manager.

They're spending too much.

No saving going on there.

She was going on and on.

So l go into the bathroom,

and she puts her hand here,

and l felt so mad...

and she puts her hand here,

and l felt so mad...

l just flipped and said

l'd like to kill you!


-What are you doing?

-No, no, l'm sorry...

-You almost killed him.

-Go and see a shrink, kid.

-l don't like shrinks.

-And why don't you...?

-No, no... l want to...

-but it scares me.

-You feel guilty?

-No, not guilty. Scared.

-Go on.

-Carry on, arsehole!

-Get off my back!

-l swear it, l can't.

-Look. Do it with your back to her.

-l swear it, l can't.

-Look. Do it with your back to her.

You need to split up.

Just look at yourself.

l don't want to.

l'm in a bad way.

Three words, Tenso.

Just three words.

l, 1 . Want, 2. Out, 3.

lf you can't say it, it's because

you're a coward,

But tell her, otherwise

you'll be in a really bad way.

But tell her, otherwise

you'll be in a really bad way.

-Try it on me. Come on.


-Try it on me.


-Three little words, come on.

-No, sod off.

-Come on.

-Just do it.


-Come here.

l want out.

That's it, great, great!

Tenso, be strong.

Marriage is like a job.

Tenso, be strong.

Marriage is like a job.

That l want to resign from.

You need a change of routine.

To stop doing... what you always do.
