watched this movie with my wife (she's from Chile), but although the camera work was nice, the story wasn't convincing. Daughter visiting dad who's doing his bar mitswa, she with relational problems, the rabbi with relational problems, well it just wasn't running on the right tracks... The shots of Valparaiso are very nice, better then in real life!
Also the friction between the rabbi, who wants to leave for Santiago de Chile, and the community leader isn't worked out in depth, just a mear comment. And then the separation of the father and daughter isn't bringing the frustration one would expect, being the cold shoulder she gives here father in the beginning. I gave it a 6 because of the nice footage of Valparaiso and Chile, the story the movie should tell is still there to be found....pity
I personally think this movie could have shed more light on the Jewish community in Chile, since they opted to use the word Goj in this movie.... For me as a non-Jew that would have been more interesting to see!
For me this movie was neither comedy nor drama, but just a lengthy seat. Too bad!
