Simple and straightforward as storytelling, and possessing no filmic flourishes, CUANDO TODO ESTE EN ORDEN is nonetheless a splendid movie. Tracking a fractured family that regroups after a death and drug-related problems, it grabs and maintains your interest by virtue of a worthwhile story and wonderful performances. The setting, too, is rendered both simple and exotic by its foreign soil (small-town Spain, undergoing more of the same economics problems we have here in the U.S.A.).
This is one of those movies that never mentions the social contract binding families, neighbors, businesses and government. Yet that contract--probably the most important in our lives--is here in every frame of this rich and wonderful film.
