Storyline

Al enamorarnos, apostamos. Y es un juego demasiado íntimo para asimilar con facilidad el fracaso. Elena sabe que el enfriamiento que atraviesa su matrimonio no es algo temporal. Alberto , su marido, un joven y prestigioso ingeniero aeronáutico, acaba de entreabrir una nueva puerta y parece decidido a atravesarla con alguien que no es ella. Alberto no pretende fingir, sencillamente está desorientado. Quiere a su mujer y a su hijo, pero intuye que la pasión que le inspira Diego es algo más que deseo. Diego, traumatólogo en una clínica privada, es un hombre sin dobleces ni prejuicios que se tira de cabeza a la piscina del amor arriesgando en ello su estabilidad emocional y profesional, como le advierte su jefa y buena amiga, Eva. Los engaños, las escenas de dolor, y la desconfianza crecen, interponiéndose entre los tres amantes. La confrontación es inevitable, y la ruptura se acelera. Pero Elena no está dispuesta a ceder sin más. Después de echar un vistazo a la situación, tensa los ... Written by Anonymous

interesting movie
21 May 2016 | by kautharabdurahmanSee all my reviews

I found myself feeling very annoyed with Alberto throughout the movie. From the very beginning you could see he was trying to find himself even after he had been married with a child already. But even after he knew he didn't truly, deep down within himself love Elena, he was still so selfish as he didn't want to let her go and be free to find someone that could love her the way she deserved to be loved. He wanted his bread buttered both sides because he did the same thing with Diego. Although, in this case Diego wouldn't take no for an answer and was extremely persistent, Alberto would still string him along and give him false hope just so that he wouldn't have to be alone with himself to actually make decisions about his life and who he truly is, what it is he actually wants and then be able to free the people around him that he has been holding down for so long. I loved the ending where he dies because it was like a huge, but tragic weight has been lifted off both Elena and Diego's shoulders because now they weren't hurting anyone by wanting to be with a man that doesn't know what he, himself wants. I know it sounds harsh that I enjoyed him dying off but his character was just awful and he was messing with people's emotions, which isn't acceptable anywhere or with anyone. I found it quite surprising to see how well Elena and Diego got along with each other even before he died. It may have been as civil as it was because the person she was being cheated on with was the same set as her husband which was probably a lot to take in and so it seems she needed the confrontation and the face to face to actually make her thoughts and feelings a reality, that this was actually happening to her. But even then, they still did not lash out at each other or even exchange harsh words. To me, this goes to show the kind of people, or rather, the kind of character they have played. Which would be kind, compassionate and understanding and that is why they put up with him until his last day.
