Teenagers Martina (Ximena Romo) and Lucio (Sebastián Aguirre) first felt the sparks of romance as pupils at a strict Catholic school. Now, 25 years later, the two former flames (played by Cecilia Suárez and Manuel García-Rulfo as adults) run into each other again by coincidence.
Seeking to prove that neither has been waiting for the other to return, they swap elaborate stories about imaginary spouses. But they will be meeting up again at an exhibition that night, so each must seek out placeholder partners to uphold their concocted ruses. As expected, everything doesn’t quite proceed as planned.
Tales of an Immoral Couple is one of those elaborate comedy-of-errors that ventures confidently into the absurd. Fueled by the thrum and hum of pop music, it is a refreshing take on classic rom-com fare.
