Juan Pablo Rebella,
A young Jewish American man endeavors to find the woman who saved his grandfather during World War II in a Ukrainian village, that was ultimately razed by the Nazis, with the help of an eccentric local.
Jonathan Safran Foer
A delightfully simple story, with simple and stereotypical characters:
The Hysteric wife, the insecure guy, the girl next door, the faithful friend with a simple life and a tighter grasp on reality. This movie delivers.
The comedy just works, and so does the drama. This movie clearly resembles Argetina's best intimate cinema, but is also modern and dynamic.
The cast is just great. Marcos Mundstock (The Analist) is a master of comedy (The presenter from Les Luthiers). Far away from playing a stock plot-filling Psychiatrist, he plays a very realistic (and Porteño) Analist, Cecilia Dopazo in this film proves that she's not only a great actress, but also a great writer. Peretti and Villamil, as usual, provide a solid acting and interact perfectly with each other.
A must see.
