Luis Miguel: La Serie (2018) s01e03 Episode Script

Yo Que No Vivo Sin Tí

That's how I remember you
With your hair flowing free
Like burning ice
Like burning ice
Different from everyone else
Don't you like the new songs?
I love them.
- Really?
- Yes.
They're cool, aren't they?
Calderón is a genius.
I love the new tracks.
Do I smell bad or what?
Don't be silly.
- Is there something in my teeth?
- Stop it.
It's just that
I feel that you don't want
to talk with me.
- I don't want to talk with you?
- Yes.
Of course I do.
What do you want to talk about?
I know you're concerned
about your little brother.
Honey, it's not normal for a four-year-old
to live without his mom.
What are you going to do?
I don't know.
I could tell my uncle, who is an asshole,
or my dad, who is a jerk.
Can I go on singing to you?
- Okay.
- Okay?
That's how I remember you
The movie sponsors
are also claiming damages, Luis.
What do we pay insurance for?
It doesn't cover anything.
There's no good cause.
Micky quit.
You'll have to find a good cause,
because no more fucking checks
will go out from this office.
- Luis.
- What?
There's a journalist outside,
he's been waiting for hours.
He won't go until he sees you.
What should I do?
Tell him what you told the others,
and kick him out.
"Luis Rey and Luis Miguel
are still working
on their next album," and that's it.
But that's what I said last week.
I can't keep giving the same excuses.
It would only feed that breakup story
There's no fucking breakup, dammit!
Where's Tito? Tito!
Hold on, Luis. Tito is not here.
You have
So will you do the interviews?
I know what to do.
We'll throw a party
for Micky's 18th birthday.
A big birthday party.
Call all the press,
I want everybody there. Everybody!
Let's see who has the balls to say
that Luis Miguel and Luis Rey broke up.
- I just want to confirm.
- Go back to work!
- If you change
- Now!
I don't get how you could marry her.
So, are we going
to that Japanese restaurant?
What's with that mustache?
It doesn't suit you.
That's the idea, nobody will recognize me
and we'll have a quiet lunch.
But I can't even recognize you.
- You don't?
- No.
- I think you do.
- Let me see.
- No. It hurts
- Micky
Mr. Luis is on the phone.
Tell him I'm not in.
Won't he be in the meeting?
Yes, but there will be
lots of other people, too.
Micky, sorry again.
He said, "Don't plan anything
for your birthday."
He has a surprise for you.
I'm so fucking sick of his surprises.
- Okay.
- Maybe he wants to apologize.
No, there is no way I'll celebrate
my birthday with him.
So you're planning to celebrate it
with someone else?
I don't know, there's a photographer
and cradle-robber who is
- No, don't do that.
- Okay.
What do you think?
"Man in Search of a Woman" fits perfectly.
That title is great.
That's what we should talk about.
Look, there he is. Micky.
- Micky.
- Wasn't the meeting at 5:00?
Yes, but my agenda got tight
and I asked them to come earlier.
Why didn't you tell me?
It's impossible to reach you.
How were we supposed to tell you?
You called me to tell me about
whatever you're doing for my birthday.
By the way, I won't attend,
I have other plans.
Okay, never mind,
let's go on with the meeting.
Did you listen to the songs?
Yes, they're amazing. The great
While you were on tour,
we were working full-time
on your next album, right, Juan Carlos?
Yes, but I guess Micky knows that.
- Well
- That jazz beat is
You'll tell him later.
The main thing here
is showing a more mature Micky.
He doesn't sing only to teens now.
- He sings to all women.
- Right from the start, Luis
wanted a mix of romantic ballads
and more upbeat songs,
but always around this more mature image.
- I like it.
- Then, let's make a toast, guys.
Cool, you can make the album
without me then.
- Come on, Micky.
- I'm serious.
This album is clearly yours.
Luis Miguel, you're what matters the most.
Sorry if we make you feel left out.
Juan Carlos, I'm not sure
about the ballads,
I want something different
Micky, we've been promoting this concept
for months.
With him, not with me.
You're talking with the best songwriter
in Hispanic America,
and you're pulling this shit? Get a grip.
No, you get a grip.
- René, do you have a second?
- Sure.
- The boy has grown up.
- Shut up.
we invested a lot of money
in those songs, they're amazing.
Let me work with Gómez Escolar.
We made a great team
for "Word of Honor."
Let me try something different with him.
- Something more upbeat, more pop.
- Like what?
Like "Never Gonna Give You Up"
by Rick Astley
or "Don't Turn Your Love Around"
by George Benson.
I don't know if that's your style, Micky.
We can target a different audience
and get new fans.
Let me make one song.
Just one song and then you decide.
You know what?
Turn up the bass a bit more, please.
- Do you like it?
- It sounds good.
We're trying to get that Rick Astley
sound, those synthesizers, that beat.
It's very catchy.
I'm telling you, man,
it's just a matter of
turning up that bass,
giving it that extra oomph.
We could add an instrumental solo.
Sax would do nicely.
No, let's try something
different, more modern,
something like the keytar.
Can we take a break now?
We've been here all day.
- All right?
- Okay.
I'll be right back.
What's a keytar?
It's like a guitar,
with a keyboard instead of strings.
Sounds like a good idea. I like it.
- You do?
- Yes.
I don't know, maybe
Maybe they're right and
it's too modern.
Can you dance to this?
Yeah? Show me.
If you're going for this sound,
you need to know how to dance.
This is my own way of dancing.
Oh, yeah? What's it like?
Stop it.
What? Like this.
- Right, sure
- Like
Move your hips.
- Like this?
- Yes.
You know how to do it.
You know what I need?
A dance instructor.
- Really?
- Yes.
I need your help. Yes
Hi, cousin. Is Tito in?
- Luis
- There he is. Hey, what's up?
Please, don't get up, it's okay.
Finish your food.
I can bust my ass
for the whole family, don't worry.
You fucking bastard.
Hey, don't be so rude or I'll get mad.
It's no big deal.
No big deal?
Micky doesn't want to see me anymore.
I didn't tell you about Hugo
for you to make
a scandal in the press.
All right.
Can you give us a minute, Rosana?
Calm down.
Relax. Everything will be all right.
Listen carefully
Micky is turning 18 very soon,
so we should stick together,
closer than ever.
Or everything will go to hell. Everything.
This, that every damn thing.
It's your fault we're in this shit.
Right. We are in shit.
Alejandro is coming tomorrow
from the boarding school,
he'll go to Micky's party.
You'll pick him up at the airport
and take him to see Micky.
That's more like it.
Your son's talent is undeniable.
But we still need to see
how he commands the stage,
how he deals with the press, the fans.
Well, on Juárez television
and in the gig we did with Andrés García,
people kept clapping for 40 minutes,
I'm not kidding.
- And just for the chorus
- That's not a parameter
for EMI, Mr. Rey.
We need to see him sing
in front of a bigger audience,
a more knowledgeable audience.
You might not know this,
but I've shared stages
with the best Spanish
and Latin American singers.
If that doesn't make me knowledgeable
Yes, we know that, Luis.
But launching a new artist
is not a trivial thing.
All right
I'll find that stage for you, okay?
But I might dig too deep
and find a record label
that truly appreciates my son's talent.
I hope not, Luis.
- I'm leaving.
- Luis.
Your lighter.
You can keep it.
Go ahead, it's a gift.
Every time you light a cigarette,
you'll remember the money you're losing
for not singing my kid.
They said that because they don't want
to invest a fucking cent.
They could find that stage themselves.
You could give me a hand, cous.
We must show we're a family.
We're all here to help you.
Anything else?
- No.
- No, thanks.
I'm exhausted.
I'll wait for you in bed, honey.
Good night.
We've got this, cous.
Why don't you train those abs?
They really need training.
You know Durazo, right?
Introduce him to me.
Please, I have a business offer for him.
You don't have offers for Durazo.
He has offers for you, if he likes you.
Then we've got this in the bag.
I want Micky to sing
at the president's daughter's wedding.
You're obsessed with your son.
Are you going to help me or not?
Yeah, I'll introduce you to that devil,
but there will be no turning back.
Don't worry.
We Galicians know
how to dance with the devil.
Go on, don't let those muscles cool down.
One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight.
five, six, seven, up. One more time.
You're looking good, Jane Fonda!
No shit.
Alexito, what are you doing here?
What about school?
They don't care if I show up or not.
- You're taking dance lessons?
- Yes.
This is Marco, this is Alex.
- Alex.
- My brother.
- Nice to meet you.
- He's my choreographer.
I'll practice for next week, I promise.
Ask Mariana for help. You almost got it.
She'd break up with me.
Hey, long time no see.
I'm spending the morning in Televisa.
Why don't you come along and we talk?
- Sure.
- I can drive you there.
- Let's go.
- Doc will take us.
I don't want to see you.
Don't come back to my house
without telling me.
Is that clear?
Come on.
What happened?
Come on, bro!
See you at my dad's, okay?
That's a cool photo.
I know, Mariana is amazing!
- Micky.
- Yes?
Did you talk with Mom?
I called, but Sergiño answered.
Sergio? Is he there?
Yes, he's with Grandma Matilde.
Mom is not in Madrid,
but her four-year-old son is?
I mean, I know
we're a weird family, but this
This is serious, bro.
Yes, I know.
But she'll probably call
to greet me for my birthday.
All right, folks, we're back
on Not a Bad Night,
and tonight is way better
than any other night.
Don't you agree, girls?
Some people call him "The Sun."
Others call him "Micky."
But, to be totally honest,
we'd rather call him "hottie."
Ladies and gentlemen,
with us tonight, Luis Miguel.
How are you doing?
- I love you, Micky! My hottie!
- You look amazing.
Thank you. You too.
Make yourself at home.
Thanks, Vero.
You've got everybody
on the set crazy for you.
Thank you.
Calm down, girls.
We have a surprise for Luis Miguel.
We've got a call for you.
- Really?
- Yes.
A call from a woman.
A woman you've shared
many wonderful moments with.
Any idea who she is?
No idea, Vero.
I'll give you a hint.
She's very beautiful.
She's calling from abroad.
From Europe.
Is she on the line?
I know you haven't spoken for a while.
This must mean a lot to you.
Hello? Micky?
Wife, how are you?
Happy birthday, husband!
Thank you.
Don't get jealous.
They've been calling each other like that
since they filmed Love Fever.
That was a while ago,
let's take a look at some pictures.
Micky is still single, so anybody who
Look at that.
I want one. Here, Alex.
- Thanks.
- I'll take this one.
Check this out.
You look exactly the same.
- Nah.
- It's the best hand-drawn portrait
- I've ever seen.
- This is my dad.
- He looks just like you.
- No.
By the way, Dad is organizing
a birthday party.
He must have invited you
so you can convince me.
You want me to come?
No, not after the way
he treated me in the meeting.
No way. Okay, what else?
"Happy birthday"
I thought it was Mom.
On the phone.
I thought it was her.
Would you like the last bit of pizza?
Alex? Come on.
- Okay.
- Here.
I called you two hours ago.
I was working.
What did you expect me to do?
- Cous.
- He's been like that for days.
I have things to do, too, Luis.
- Okay.
- It's not okay.
I can't stay at home all day
with this burden.
I'll take care of him, don't worry.
Come on, go to your room.
Hey, cous.
Hey! Come on.
Wake up. Come on.
Give me that whiskey.
Come on, man
Look at your wife.
Look what you're doing to her, dammit.
Come on, go get a shower
and we'll have dinner out.
We shouldn't have done that, Luis.
It was wrong.
It was so wrong.
Come on, get up.
He's like a son to me,
I saw him grow up, Luis.
I know that you love him.
What we did that night
Shit! Enough!
If I hear you talking
about that night again,
I'll cut your throat, you hear me?
It's okay now.
You showed me what true love is
I wish I could give you roses
But they might get jealous of your skin
I will always sing your name, Marcela
This love song is for you, Marcela
I will always adore you
I will never leave you
I'll sing again for you
some other day.
- Give me cognac.
- You'll scare me to death.
Here, take it to Durazo, okay?
- Like this.
- No, Luis.
Sometimes I have to do things I hate
to provide for the family, so please.
Smile, you look prettier when you do.
Come on, go.
- Hello.
- Hello.
This is from my husband.
Don't be rude, Andrés, introduce us.
I thought you had met, general.
She's Luis Rey's wife
and a dear friend of mine.
- Marcela, nice to meet you.
- Marcela.
Nice to meet you too, Marcela.
Excuse me.
Where are you from, Marcela?
I can't pinpoint your accent.
I'm from Italy,
but I grew up in Argentina.
You're Italian?
Italian women are gorgeous.
- Thank you.
- Really gorgeous.
- Marcela, where's the boy?
- Where were you?
Talking with Andrés. Where did he go?
- I don't know.
- Andrés.
My sun.
My sun, wake up.
Come, honey.
Are you okay?
- Here he is.
- Come.
Are you ready? Let's go.
- Come on. You're ready.
- Are you sure you're ready?
Come on.
Good evening, everyone.
I guess you already know Micky, my son.
Don't worry, he sings better than me.
He'll sing a song for us
that we're very proud to dedicate
to our guest of honor, General Durazo.
Looking at a glass of wine
I laugh at myself
I feel so sad
That I can't help laughing
I heard you left me
Don't even think I've cried for you
I've drunk a few glasses
I've looked at my reflection
And I've told myself
And I've told myself
"With my looks and without a cent"
"Who's going to love me?"
Your son sings wonderfully.
Thank you.
Just imagine him before the president.
You know, general,
if you just could help us get our boy
to sing at the wedding,
I'll be forever grateful.
You will?
And my family, too.
Is that so?
All right, okay.
Hi, Micky.
Sorry, I
These are your birthday presents.
Leave those there, Doc.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
- Thanks.
- There's this puppy.
- Next time, knock louder.
- It's
Yes, sure.
And the chorus kicks in.
Micky, I'm sorry,
but that sounds like somebody else.
Somebody like Chayanne, not you.
You're on his side.
There are no sides, dammit.
Let me record a demo. This is
This is a backing track,
let me put my voice on it.
You have only this week to decide
if you'll record Calderón's songs.
What if I don't?
We already paid for them,
somebody else will.
you're giving me no choice, man.
And you came looking for me.
I had to.
What he gave us is good.
But it's not for the kind of artist he is.
What else did you expect?
I don't know, but we have to convince him
to sing Calderón's songs.
I can't lose an artist like Luis Miguel.
What do you want me to do?
Shit! Honey!
Shit! Check this out.
That bastard talked with WEA.
They're organizing that fucking party.
Didn't you refuse, like, 20 times?
I did.
Just don't go.
I can't miss it.
The record label will take it as a sign
that I'm breaking relations with them.
Maybe that's what they deserve.
They shouldn't treat you like this.
The song you gave them is amazing.
What if they're right?
What if I can't make it without him?
You've been with him all your life.
It's natural that you feel this way.
Look at me.
You're not alone.
What if she doesn't like how I sing?
How can she not like it?
She'll love it, don't worry.
Why isn't she here yet?
She's a very busy girl,
she has lots of things to do.
Don't worry about it.
Thank you for seeing us, Miss Alina.
Nice too meet you.
You must be the prodigy
everybody is talking about.
Yes, that's him.
Do you mind if I talk
with your dad for a second?
Wait here.
I'm terribly sorry for making you come
for nothing.
We have everything settled,
the banquet, the musicians
I'm sure you'll understand
that we can't squeeze
in your son's performance.
I'm very sorry for wasting your time.
But we came such a long way,
I think we can
Malaga's beauty
How I wish I could kiss your lips
You're so sweet and enchanting
Malaga's beauty
Sorry for coming so late, Hugo, but
I need to talk with you.
This is gold.
What don't you like about it?
I want to find my voice.
You can't hear your voice in these songs?
I don't know, but if I make mistakes,
at least they're mine.
Yeah, that's what growing up
is all about, boy.
But if you want
to take control of your career,
you'll have to stop acting like a kid.
Your voice is extraordinary,
all you have to do
is avoid singing crap.
You have a lot of wise people around you.
- Calderón, René
- My dad.
Your dad made you a star, didn't he?
That son of a gun
must know a thing or two.
Are you having a good time?
Hey, how are you?
- How are you?
- Great, I'm happy to be here.
All good?
Hey, what's up?
Thank you for coming.
All good?
Listen up, everybody, my Micky is coming!
He's coming, go, go, go.
Yeah, Micky!
Happy birthday, Micky!
- Thank you.
- Happy birthday, Micky.
- You're 18 already!
- I appreciate you all coming.
I'm very happy to have you here tonight.
- How's your album coming along?
- Is Hugo López coming?
Did you make up with your dad?
I'm at my dad's house.
Does that answer your question?
How are you, son?
Is it true that you have a girlfriend?
He has no girlfriend.
René, come here!
The four of us.
Let's take a picture with Juan Carlos.
I know, I know.
How are you, Micky?
We need to talk.
Come on, get a drink. How are you?
My father will gladly tell you
about the new album.
- Tell them about the new songs.
- Sure.
- Thanks, Dad.
- Well
What's your opinion on the new songs?
- How many are they?
- The album has ten songs.
We've been working on them
for a long time.
Excuse me. Thanks.
I didn't want to come here.
I'm sorry, Micky,
I didn't know how else to convince you.
René, I've always been
a great fan of Calderón.
I'll record that album on one condition.
He can't be the producer.
Are you sure, Micky?
working on the album, and
From now on,
you'll deal with Hugo López, okay?
Oh, and
Thanks for the party.
Are you having a good time?
Are you having a good time?
Thank you.
Thank you. Enjoy the party.
It sucks, isn't it?
I did my part.
How was it?
Honey, I'm sorry.
I'll get away from here as soon as I can.
I don't know if our table reservation
at the restaurant is still valid.
Thanks, honey.
Yeah, I'll pick you up. Okay.
we'll be three.
If I leave Alex here, he'll kill me.
Okay. See you.
- Shall we go?
- Yeah.
Dad will get mad when he notices you left.
- You left, too.
- Yeah, but I don't matter.
That's bullshit, Alex.
Hey, did Mom call you?
Let's go.
Where will I find a restaurant open
this late?
It's your birthday, she'll understand.
- Micky
- I don't know.
Honey. I'm sorry.
That was so bad of me. I'm sorry.
Please, forgive me. You won't believe
What are you laughing at?
I've got a package
for Mrs. Marcela Basteri.
For Marcela? Hold on, please.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Need help with that jacket?
Turn around, Micky.
You'll be the most handsome boy
at the wedding.
And you'll be
the most handsome boy at home.
I'm ready, Dad.
- So?
- Dress up.
You're coming with us.
- Really?
- Open it.
Is it really for me?
But, Luis
- This is too fancy.
- You deserve it.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
Look at you, you're looking sharp.
Show your chain, like your dad.
There you go. Perfect.
This is buttoned correctly.
- That's how I remember you
- You have started already?
You let everyone gaze at you
Mr. Luis.
- What's going on?
- Micky doesn't want to see you now.
- I'm his father.
- I'm sorry, you better not
- Let me in. Come on, let me in. Micky!
- No, Mr. Luis. I'm sorry
Let me in!
- Doc.
- Let me in.
- Hey, stop it.
- Get your hands off me!
- What the fuck is going on, Micky?
- Enough, take it easy.
Don't treat me like this,
we've achieved so much together.
- Are you going to throw all that away?
- Dad, I need space.
The boy needs space
and we can all fuck ourselves.
You're the one
who's been fucking with my life.
You're so ungrateful, Micky.
Cut this shit, will you?
What are your plans
for your dad and uncle, huh?
I'm not like you. Please.
Easy, man, easy.
- Let's talk inside.
- No.
Talk with Hugo López
about the company payments.
You can handle the finances, but
you'll stay out of my career
and personal life, okay?
Dad, I need to know if it's okay with you,
it's either that or nothing.
All right.
All right.
Shall we go on?
Good evening. First of all, we would like
to thank you for being here tonight.
The bride's parents feel honored
to celebrate this special occasion
with all of you.
- Oh, honey!
- Let's go.
Come on, let's go.
I thought I missed you.
Remember, the audience is important,
but Alina and the president
are more important.
- I know, Dad.
- Yes.
But I have to remind you about it anyway,
and remember to project.
Project your voice, okay? Sing real loud.
We have a surprise from the bride
to our president,
so please give a big hand
to Alina, she'll come up
to say a few words.
Project, project. Come on.
- Good afternoon.
- Good afternoon.
How are you?
Fine, thank you.
The dress looks wonderful on you.
When I saw it in the window,
I never thought it would look like this,
so incredible, so astonishing.
Dad, this song is specially for you.
To thank you for everything
you've done for me.
- I hope you like it.
- Marcelita.
Thank you.
You're welcome, Marcelita.
Whenever you're ready, Micky.
How could you use me like I was a whore?
Don't overreact, Marcela.
Don't ruin all this
over such a stupid thing.
I felt proud when I put on this dress.
You make me sick.
Are you okay, Mom?
Listen, honey. You're my sunshine.
I'll always be by your side,
protecting you.
- Always?
- Always.
Come on!
Sing now, for the bride.
The way you are with me
Makes you my greatest love
You're the wheel, the sails
The ship, the sea, the oars
You're the fresh water
That quenches my thirst
You're the hug that embraces my feelings
You're the return I look forward to
I had a terrible day.
What's going on?
Come here.
It's from Manzano, Italy.
my thought.
You're my reason, my other half
My strength, my complement
You're the sweetness
That lights up my soul every day
You are the truth that comes to me
Like rushing water
