Lucky man

Uriel Cohen, a divorced father of two children, is addicted to playing poker on line. His life seems to be on track, being the owner of a financial firm in Buenos Aires. He has come to the realization he will not like to have more children. For that, he needs to consult his doctor, who suggests he goes to another city, Rosario for a confidential procedure. He is lucky in finding a casino where he can enjoy playing poker. Unknown to him, as chance would have it, he meets an old flame, Gloria, who is also staying at his hotel. Remembering the good times he shared with Gloria, he realizes he cannot have intimate contact with a woman he once loved. Gloria is confused by what she feels is a rejection.

The lovers will come together again later on in Buenos Aires. By then, Uriel and Gloria decide to bring romance into their relationship, something both want. Unfortunately, Uriel had lied about his profession to Gloria, thinking a more glamorous job in the local music business will be nicer. The ruse backfires on Uriel, as Gloria finds out what her lover really does for a living, and to Uriel's amazement, she could not care less.

The film, a romantic comedy by noted director Daniel Burman, marks a change of pace for this talented filmmaker. Mr. Burman goes for a comedy that does not compare with his previous work. There are aspects of the story that ring false as he tries to inject cuteness to the story, especially in meeting a rabbi who is a gambler himself, who does not seem to find anything wrong with Uriel's gambling. The way Mr. Burman ends the film appears to be a cop out when Uriel's young son is allowed to play with a band of Hasidic Jews in front of a large crowd. The screenplay was a collaboration with Sergio Dubkovsky. And where the first half of the story showed promise, it does not keep the momentum.

Singer turned actor Jorge Drexler does what he can, but he is not in the same league as Daniel Hendler, an actor long associated with the director. Valeria Bertuccelli,who is seen as Gloria, continues to make an impression. Norma Aleandro, one of Argentina's best actresses, is relegated to a minor, unimportant role.
