The best mother-son relationship drama in years
23 October 2004 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This Argentinian film, currently in the international film festival circuit, is not-to-be-missed. It stars the 80 something year old South American diva of theater and cinema, China Zorrilla and Eduardo Blanco (of the 2001 Oscar-nominated hit "Son of the Bride"). A truly poignant story, it is nevertheless delivered with lots of humor - with the best exchange of one-liners between mother and son I can remember, making the film light and thoroughly enjoyable. There is not one dull moment, nor is there a climax. It is uniformly entertaining, thought-provoking, and emotional throughout. None of the corniness one would expect (I did) about the subject matter ever surfaces. It is fresh, delightful, and uplifting. If this film is not a 10, then there are no tens. Enjoy it.
