Solamente vos (in Spanish, "Only you") is a 2013 Argentine telenovela, starred by Natalia Oreiro and Adrián Suar.

Juan Cousteau, a former rock star, is an opera director. His wife Ingrid, "La Polaca", is tired of their marriage and forces him to live somewhere else; but they still have five children. He meets in the hospital a woman named Aurora Andrés, a haircutter. She's the lover of Juan's best friend, Félix Month, who is married with Michelle. Coincidentally, Juan moves to a new apartment that is next to Aurora's, and becomes her neighbour.


Solamente Vos contains examples of:

  • Aesop Amnesia: Aurora began the story as the lover of Felix Month, a married man. This circumstance gave her so many problems and frustrations, that she eventually left him, and began a romance... with Juan, a married man.
  • All Just a Dream: At the end of a Friday episode, Juan was kicked out of his home at 4 AM, and Aurora allowed him to stay the night at her house. At the beginning of the Monday episode, they are in the bed after a nice night of sex... and then, Juan wakes up, in the couch of his living room.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Eugenio.
  • Auto Erotica: Juan and Aurora tried to do it, and then Ingrid took the car. And, once in the street, she ran over to get the police when she heard people whispering inside the car, making Juan and Aurora get down of the car, pointed by guns.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Denise, Juan's little step-sister, has fallen in love with him. He's completely horrified by the mere idea of Brother-Sister Incest, and refuses to hear a single syllable about the "only step-siblings" excuse.

  • Easily Overheard Conversation: Felix is talking with Michelle in the phone, and suddenly Aurora comes very serious: she's tired of being "the other", she's tired of his constant promises of breaking up with Michelle that never became true, she's tired of not having a real romantic life but just the few spare moments he gets from his relationship with Michelle... and, while she was talking, Felix forgot to end the phone call: Michelle heard it all.
  • Exact Words: Eugenio returned home with his hair dyed green, and La Polaca got angry about it. He said he got the haircut at Aurora's hair salon, and La Polaca confronted her, but Aurora denied having done that... and that was the case. He said he got the haircut at Aurora's, not that Aurora did it (there are two others working there), and complained that nobody ever listens or pays attention to what he says.
