Married and successful, Diego and Emilia live a traditional family life with their 14-year-old son. Diego's business partner, Richard, seems to have a pretty ordinary relationship with his girlfriend, Bettina, as well. But during a drunken celebration one night, Bettina confesses to Emilia that she and Richard are actually members of a swingers club. Titillated, Emilia tries to convince the reluctant Diego that they should try out the swinging lifestyle for themselves. Diego, though he's willing to discuss it, isn't sure that he's ready to go all the way. Undaunted, the other three launch a campaign to change Diego's mind. With this simple premise, this Argentinian box-office hit is off and running; taking the couples from huge swinger parties to more. . . intimate gatherings. Diego Kaplan is a director who loves actors, and all four performers deliver delicious performances, especially Adrián Suar's flustered Diego, whose nervous prattling manages to inspire both chuckles and sympathy at the same time. Meanwhile, Kaplan keeps the pace moving in this funny and bittersweet comedy about two couples trying to explore their sexual boundaries while simultaneously juggling the everyday problems of getting their kids to soccer practice on time.
Diego Kaplan took a hiatus after his first film ¿Sabés nadar? (2002), during which he developed a successful career in publicity.
