One of the great steps taken by the Dominican Film Industry, is producing films featuring international distribution; Lantica Media wants to continue contributing by presenting its second production with international distribution: “Complices”.

Director Luis Eduardo Reyes, hosted his Premiere Gala on Tuesday at Caribbean Cinemas DownTown Center, despite the absence of cast leads Arath De la Torre and Jesus Zavala, whom according to the event organizers, were already tied up with previous engagements in Mexico, country where the film made its screen debut on February 23rd, making it the 2nd blockbuster to sell out at the box office during opening week.

Complices” is a Rom-Com that doesn’t show us nothing we’ve never seen before, yet, it needs be said, that its exceeded trailer expectations and keeps the public hooked from beginning to end.

The production was filmed in Mexico and in the D.R., and tells the story of Juan Campos ( Arath De la Torre) a playboy, character used in several films, whose mission is to teach his 20-year old nephew Mauricio (Mau) how to pick up women.

Actor Jesus Zavala saved the day playing Mau, a shy young man, depressed over his girlfriend leaving him for another man. Zavala connected to the public through his role and added the comic spark to the plot.

The “Complices” cast is completed by Dominican talents: Eva Arias, Ruth Ocumárez, Sharlene Taulé, Claudette Lalí, Héctor Aníbal, Paula Ferry, Liche Ariza and Roza Gough.
