Storyline

Santiago wakes up like any other morning. He goes down to the kitchen and his whole family is waiting for him: it's his birthday. They all sing "Happy Birthday to You" and give him presents. But when he opens the present of his youngest son, he gets angry and says he doesn't like it. The boy starts crying and saying that he loves him, but Santiago answers that he doesn't believe him and he tells the boy that he is fired and that he wants another son, who is thinner, who doesn't need glasses and who resembles him more. Written by Pablo Montoya <mmontoyac@nexo.es>

very funny, excellent comedy
15 March 2002 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

This astonishing story of a lonely man who organizes a family birthday with professional actors is a successful comedy. This film is funny and fast. I wonder why it is less known than "4 Weddings and 1 funeral". Maybe because it is not starring Hughes Grant or Andy McDowell.
