Congratulations to our Colombian friend, Writer / Director Andres Burgos on the recent release of his film AMALA LA SECRETARIA, a bittersweet comedy about Amalia, a woman in her forties. She is the secretary of the CEO of Ferrelectricos Vallejo, a family business going through hard times. Tidy and efficient, she also has the lack of sympathy necessary to keep unwanted visitors away. She is relentless. Amalia leads a simple life designed by herself. Monotonous but safe. She is convinced that she needs nothing else. Until one day she meets Lazaro, a maintenance guy who comes to her office to make a repair. His completely opposite character, his spontaneity and tendency to chaos awakens unexpected feelings in her. So much that from then on she will do damages with the only purpose of having him around. La película cuenta con una buena dosis de humor, un mensaje para toda la familia y una historia única como la que quiere contar Burgos, libretista de la telenovela ‘Hasta que la plata nos separe’ (2006-2007) y la dirección de ‘Sofía y el terco’ (2012), que protagonizó la española Carmen Maura.This is "AMALIA LA SECRETARIA-Trailer_englishsubs" by Habanero Film Sales on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them. ...
