The man in your life is not always the man of your dreams! In this romantic comedy, Marga is at a dead endàpregnant, unemployed and with a recently deceased boyfriend. Everything changes when her best friend agrees to take care of her son and she purchases a video store. The only thing missing is a man. Enter Inaqui û young, handsome, and possibly gay! Can true love overcome such obstacles? I Will Survive (Sobreviviré) answers this question in a funny, touching way. Stars Emma Suarez, Juan Diego Botto, Mirta Ibarra and Rosana Pastor.

SOBREVIVIRE (I WILL SURVIVE) is a fine little film from Spain circa 1999 that because of recent important legislation in that country becomes even more pertinent than when it was made. Co-written and directed by Alfonso Albacete, with assistance from David Menkes and Lucía Etxebarría, this is a fresh look at relationships and the human needs and the compromises faced in the search for happiness. SOBREVIVIRE is probably the healthiest and most intelligent examination of pan sexuality: it takes on tough issues and allows them to nurture the comedy that is life!

After an introduction of her childhood idiosyncrasies we meet the adult Marga (the superb Emma Suárez) wholly in love with Roberto (Adrià Collado), joyfully creating a home for their upcoming marriage. There is a car accident and Marga is injured but Roberto is killed, devastating Marga who has learned that she is pregnant with Roberto's child. At the same time she loses her job due to her disruptive friend Trini (Rosana Pastor) and must strike out on her own. She is denied government funds until she gives birth to her child and in desperation she falls into a video store ownership and takes on a Cuban au pair Rosa (Mirta Ibarra) who lightens not only her domestic load but also her spirit. Some years pass and Marga and Rosa become fast friends.

As Marga begins to feel the loneliness of being a single mom she meets handsome Iñaqui (Juan Diego Botto) in her video store. Iñaqui is recovering from a breakup with his boyfriend Oscar (Alberto San Juan) and is as attracted to Marga as she is to him. Iñaqui informs Marga he is gay, a fact that Rosa and other friends have already prepared her for.

So-so comedy from Spain about a thirty-something widow (Emma Suárez) who falls in love with a younger gay man (Juan Diego Botto).

Very funny in places (the best scene is where the gay man tries to figure out how to make love to a woman.) But all too often the situations that are supposed to be funny fall flat.

The most serious problem, though, is the casting. There is absolutely no chemistry between the leads. Botto is charming and appealing and quite sweet. But Suarez totally lacks charisma. She is a big zero in that department. It isn't that she is a bad actress or bad looking or anything like that. But to imagine a gay man would be so smitten with her that he would be willing to try to change his sexual orientation is ridiculous. With a charismatic leading actress the film would have had a better chance to succeed.
