Mexico City.- Lu (Ludwika Paleta) had been in a relationship with her boyfriend Raúl (Hernán Mendoza) for 15 years when she caught him “moving” with another woman.
But after moments of depression, far from throwing herself into the drama or giving in to his requests to return to her, she accepts that everything is over and puts a good face on her situation.
Lu, who is in her 40s, now has to move into her single apartment and restructure her life, so she looks for a job and has to enter a competition with another candidate.
These are the basics of the romantic comedy “Do You Want to Be My Son?” written and directed by Ihtzi Hurtado, premiering this Thursday on Vix Premium.
“Ihzti is a very prepared woman who does not have these established parameters of a conventional woman. She has a lot of experience, she has written a column for a long time, she has worked in several areas and I liked her suggestion. It begins with The fact that Lu isn’t the woman who “She starts crying and tells the main character, ‘I can’t live without you.’ She’s trying to move forward on her own,” Ludwika said in an interview.
“I really liked this work because it has a female vision from a very capable director (Ihtzi), and working with Ludwika, a great actress, forced me to do my best and try to always be much better “,” added story co-star Juanpa Zurita.
Lu will already know some of her neighbors, but some newcomers will introduce themselves to her in the worst possible way, with parties and loud music.
Angry, she begins to complain to the young people, including Javier (Zurita), a 23-year-old boy, a womanizer, irresponsible and indifferent to almost everything in life.
But in the end, they will start a “joint business” because Lu lied at work and claimed he had a 19-year-old son, making Javier perfect for the role of the fictional boy.
Things stall, however, because Javier starts to like the woman he’s supposedly the son of, and she wants to know what a romance with this “boy” would be like.
“It is a very fun and entertaining romantic comedy and the situation that arises with my character is very beautiful. The truth is, I confirm that there are children of my generation who dream of a romance with a more mature woman.” . Oof! It’s a great anecdote to bring to the cinema,” Zurita said.
“There are many cases of older women falling in love with younger men and pointing it out or criticizing them, and when it’s the other way around, when it’s a mature man with a young woman, they congratulate him, they applaud him.” . It shouldn’t be like this,” he said. Pallet.
