“Tales of an Immoral Couple,” directed by Manolo Caro (“Elvira I Will Give You My Life But I’m Using It”), is a comic tale of love lost and found. When former high school lovers Martina (Cecilia Suárez, “Elvira I Will Give You My Life But I’m Using It”) and Lucio (Manuel García-Rulfo, “The Magnificent Seven”) run into each other 25 years later, they both pull out the classic trick to fool one another into thinking they’ve moved on: faking a relationship. A nostalgic dual narrative takes us back to the halls of a strict Catholic high school, with Ximena Romo (“The Color of Passion”) and Sebastián Aguirre (“A Monster With a Thousand Heads”) playing teenage Martina and Lucio, respectively. As Martina and Lucio inch closer together in the present day, the flashback reveals the teenage couple’s passionate puppy love and the reason it ended. “Tales of an Immoral Couple” offers the best of both worlds, a sweet blend of heart-pinching coming of age and situational comedy.
