2 + 2

Dos más dos is the latest -absolutely hilarious- movie by Diego Kaplan.
It’s about 2 couples, Diego and Emilia (Adrian Suar and Julieta Diaz) and Richard and Betina (Juan Minujín and Carla Peterson). They have been first friends for over 10 years, and the husbands are partners in a clinic. One day Betina tells the other couple that they are swingers, Emilia and Diego are both shocked but intrigued as well. Seeing how great Richard and Betina are as a couple (they are all over each other) and realizing their relationship could use a serious boost, Emilia wants to go for it too, but her conservative husband does not agree at all.

This leads to the most hilarious situations, where the 3 of them try to convince Diego, and even when they finally drag him to a party and several beautiful women are all over him, he still feels uncomfortable and refuses…

It is a great movie, even though the ending is quite predictable (but then what do you expect?).

Don’t miss this movie, in the theatre or at home, but don’t watch the trailer, it shows way too much of the movie!

  1. This looks like the sort of film that will end up on Netflix in the US, so I’ll be able to see it without going to Argentina. But if it’s still around when I’m on my next trip… One never knows; the INCAA theaters often show Argentine films for an additional season, and I was happy to be able to see “Las acacias,” “Mia,” and one or two other films while I was there. I was very sorry to miss “Verdades verdaderas,” though.
    Thanks for the review!

  2. I have seen this film a few days ago in Montevideo / Uruguay and consider it one of the best I have seen within the last years. The dialogs (I heared the spanish version) are authentic and credible and the characters well chosen. A film to remember and I ask myself why we do not see more of this in Europe.
