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 don't believe it.

Do you know one of the things

l hate most in this world?

l can't bear coincidence seekers.

They get on my nerves.

You know, people who are always

looking for bloody coincidences.

Just yesterday the girl from 2B

asked me what sign l was.

Just yesterday the girl from 2B

asked me what sign l was.

What sign am l? But don't you know me?

As if you cared.

Sagittarius, l said.

''Ah, when were you born?''

Hey, l don't believe it!

She says:
''A friend

was born on the 11th''. So?

l don't get it.

What the f*ck do l care?

So you've got a friend who was born

two days later.

Excuse me.

Stupid bitch. Brothers, sisters,

she says.

Yes, l said.

Brother or sister?

Sister. l have a sister. Why?

So you or your friend have a sister?

Some coincidence?

ls the earth about to move?

What's going to happen?

Younger or older than you, she asks.

l've got a twin sister.

What do you make of that?

Some f*ckin' coincidence!

Don't you

think it's a coincidence?

What's the plan? To have me locked up?

Careful.

-No, no, l was taking it off.

-Drive me mad,

until my brain rots whenever

l enter the building?

You knowthose people who talk

and talk and talk?

As if a coincidence could

bring us closer together,

so we can talk about things

together, or something.

But she'sjust a neighbour.

The woman from 2B.

l don't want to talk.

She just lives

in the same building.

The old cow's probably up there

listening to us right now.

l reckon you're winding yourself

up, Tana.

-What's that?

-Uh?

What you've got there, what is it?

l don't believe you're still spending

money on the agent.

l don't believe you're still spending

money on the agent.

What did you get him? Silk

handkerchiefs, some nice socks?

What sort of present can you

give an agent?

OK, no problem, sorry.

Sorry, sorry, sorry.

Some people live

from official shady dealings...

Some people live
