| Delightful Battle of the Sexes
In Santiago, Chile, the efficient architect Amanda (Bárbara Mori) finds that her boyfriend Pepe (Felipe Camiroaga) is cheating on her with her friend Fernanda (Paz Bascuñan). Amanda threats them both with a shotgun, but is arrested and loses her job. She travels to Valparaiso and decides to disguise as an ugly woman married with children to earn respect by the men. Amanda is hired by Max (Jaime Azócar) to work at his company with the chauvinist wolf Marcelo (Marcelo Mazzarello); the dedicated but limited family man Guillermo (Rodrigo Muñoz); and the ambitious just graduated architect Karen (Amaya Forch). Soon she proves to be very efficient and decides to give a lesson to Marcelo, seducing him posing as the sexy Helena. Meanwhile Marcelo gets closer to Amanda that becomes his best female friend and adviser. When Helena humiliates Marcelo, he changes his behavior and falls in love with Amanda. And she also falls for him, but she is behind the eight ball with the situation she has created. Meanwhile Karen hits on Marcelo that is emotionally vulnerable.

"Pretendiendo" is a delightful romantic comedy with a different battle of the sexes. The movie works because of the performance and make-up of the sexy and hot Bárbara Mori. It is impressive the transformation of her characters. Marcelo Mazzarello is a common man and gives more credibility to his character. This is the first movie that I see a movie with Bárbara Mori and I am looking forward to see others. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Disfarce" ("The Disguise")
