Toni Acosta, again involved in the role of mother of the family after the recent deliveries of ‘Father there is only one’, defend in ‘Polyamory for beginners’ boring wives and their ability to resist: “Women have a brutal adaptability.”
“You may be super bored with your husband and your marriage, but there you stay, because other things fill you; when you see a couple who have been married for 25 years, very few are saved, most -he says, funny- they are extremely bored “.
That is the ‘leit motif’ of his character in the choral comedy ‘Polyamory for beginners’, twenty-fifth incursion of the veteran Madrid director Fernando Colomo placeholder image in comedy, which hits theaters this Friday, this time with a choral cast led by María Pedraza (Amanda) and Quim Ávila (Manu).
Manu, a tall youtuber who lives with his parents, Tina (Acosta) and Satur (Karra Elejalde) falls in love with Amanda, a young woman who practices polyamory.

“She is extremely bored, her husband is soporific,” explains Acosta, who started from this idea for his character after an improvisation with Inma Cuevas who, in her role as “guru” of this new way of understanding sexuality and sexuality. life, he asked Tina what her husband was like. “Boring,” she replies, in one of the funniest scenes in the movie.
“I love Tina’s evolution, because it is her husband who comes up with proposals, but it is she who adapts and enjoys the change”, Acosta points out. She acknowledges that she has discovered the terms that define the various states of polyamory from the film. “I did not know, for example, that it was a philosophy that has its own ethics: that of non-monogamy, which allows to love others, but with some rules. With many rules, he says, if you want it to go well.”
