-The Marriage App Review contains no spoilers-
The film begins with a plot similar to any other marriage-themed film, in which the couple has become boring and docile. The differences between them increase as they are dissatisfied in the relationship with each other. The husband tries to stay away from the house as much as possible, and the wife feels uncomfortable because she doesn’t pay attention to him.
But the plot takes a turn when Belén and Fede try to reignite the romance with the help of a facility that has these skills. They arrive at Equilibrium, where they help the couple mend their bond through a clock that doesn’t tell time but counts miles, much like Flyer miles. The miles increase with every service they render to each other and they can eventually claim rewards with the miles they earn.
The plot of the film is unique, which makes it unpredictable. The gradual progression of the story also gives the audience a real glimpse into the inner workings of a marriage and how two people try to make it work. The display of anger, dissent and selfishness among the pair gives it a fresh and tangible point of view.
The jokes in the film are well written, which adds value to the story. The background music also makes the scenes more interesting and engaging. The locations, costumes and styling of the characters are also satisfying.
Luisana Lopilato stole the show in the lead role. She gave an excellent performance and stayed in her character the whole time. Juan Minujín also did a good job and delivered what the script called for. The supporting actors also did an adequate job. The only disappointing thing about the film is the ending and the lack of a conclusion.
