VIENDOMOVIES PREMIERES ‘LA CHICA DEL ALQUILER” IN A SEPTEMBER FULL OF CELEBRATIONS
ViendoMovies, the 24-hour movie channel originally produced in Spanish, without commercial breaks and produced by SOMOSTV (a company that is part of SOMOS Group and presided over by Luis Villanueva), premieres this weekend “La Chica del Alquiler,” a Venezuelan production between SOMOS FILMS and Ananás Producciones. The film is directed by Carlos Caridad-Montero and stars Agustín Segnini, Daniela Alvarado, Patricia Schwarzgruber, and Luis Alfredo Olavarrieta. The channel, which celebrates its 17th anniversary this September in the United States and Puerto Rico, airs exclusive contemporary Spanish-language films from all Spanish-speaking countries, all of which have been successful in their countries of origin. It is distributed by major cable, satellite, and telecommunications companies.
“La Chica del Alquiler” is a fun comedy that tells the story of Lorena and Sebastian. After Lorena, the woman he thought was the love of his life, leaves him at the altar, Sebastian has no better idea than to look for her at the beach house they rented for their honeymoon. There he meets Valeria, the rental girl, who is determined to cure his heartbreak, break his rigid schemes, and turn him into a new Sebastian until the runaway bride appears on the beach with Tomás, the wedding’s best man. The film is shot in attractive locations that enhance the cinematographic quality of the production. The narrative establishes a chain of entanglements, encounters, and disagreements on a path that portrays the tropical coast and the revelation of a new love. It should be noted that this SOMOS Films (part of SOMOS Group) co-production is integrated into the company’s catalog, which has produced 13 feature films in different countries since 2018, such as Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Peru among others. SOMOS Films has ventured into different themes, including comedy, historical drama, melodrama, thrillers, and fiction.
