A Witty Mexican Jewish Comedy
5 April 2001 | by (Chicago USA) – See all my reviews

This is a film about two Jewish girls growing up in Mexico City in the 60s. One is from a Sephardic Jewish background...her relatives came from Turkey to Mexico. They speak Ladino, the language the Jews in Spain spoke when they were kicked out by Columbus' backers Ferdinand and Isabella. She has a big family. The other has only her parents and one uncle...everybody else died in the Holocaust.

This is nicely observed, very funny coming of age film. It was a big hit at the Chicago Latino Film Festival. All my friends that saw it liked it a lot.

I don't think your local Blockbuster has this one, but you can buy it.

The title they used in the US release was "Bride to Be", although there is an older film with that same name.
