Overview

A sexy woman decides to find out what life is like for her less attractive sisters in this comedy from Chile. Amanda Bárbara Mori is a beautiful, intelligent, and talented woman who is trying to make a name for herself as an architect, but despite her seeming good fortune, Amanda is not happy with her life. Amanda's husband is chronically unfaithful to her, and her boss is by turns a bully and a weakling, and she begins to wonder if men disrespect her because of her good looks. Amanda puts this theory to the test when she leaves her husband and job behind and moves to a new town, where she takes the name Helene and disguises her face and figure with a padded suit, an ugly wig, dowdy makeup and crooked false teeth. Relying solely on her talent, Helene quickly gets a job at a small design firm whose boss Max Jaime Azocar is greatly impressed with her ideas for new buildings. One of Helene's new co-workers is Marcelo Marcelo Mazarello, a shirt-chasing male chauvinist who initially pays no attention to the frumpy new employee. However, as they get to know one another, Marcelo finds he admires Helene's turn of mind and enjoys having a friendship with a woman for a change, though Amanda is appalled by his attitudes toward women -- so much that she hatches a plan to turn the tables on him by meeting him without her Helene disguise. Pretendiendo aka Pretending received its North American premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.

    Totally funny movie!  This movie is rather sexy and alot of fun.

    Totally funny movie!  This movie is rather sexy and alot of fun.  The main character hides her beauty, so she can be taken seriously by her male coworkers.  She succeeds, but ends up falling in love with one of them and he with her.  The only impediment, is that she has lied and told everyone she is married with children.  However, as you know, love will find a way and it does in this film.  It has a great script.  Lots of fun dialogue.
