Clara Goldstein is a lovely, middle-aged Jewish woman who, because of an impending visit from her American brother, is forced to create a contrived relationship with a man of her own faith.

Having no alternative, Clara proceeds to instruct Raul with an intensive course in Judaism. Their journey is both humorous and captivating, but not without pitfalls. These two mature people risk a last chance at a meaningful relationship in their lives. Written by

Calling out to the crew of Love Actually: This IS the way to make a romance movie, yours is the way NOT to!!!
I'm absolutely stunned by Sol De Otoño! It's an adorable love story, and a great movie with flawless cinematography and excellent acting. I was surprised to see it's THIS good! I couldn't help marvel at such a great acting made merely of face gestures, and a story that's handled so well. I guess I'm not exaggerating my feelings when I say this kind of movie comes once in a decade, if that.
The DVD I have is not exactly DVD quality, and it's disappointing to see such a fabulous movie on a below-par video quality. But still, it was one of the best 105 minutes of my life! Anyone with a heart, and anyone with the least bit of a taste on movies, will certainly LOVE this flick! It's lots of fun, and a magnificent art work at the same time.
Sol De Otoño is entertaining, yet poignant and touching. It's a well-kneaded mixture of first class art and great entertainment. Definitely the best Argentine movie I've seen, and probably the best movie I've seen overall.
A perfect 10/10 from me.
