Storyline

Clara Goldstein is a lovely, middle-aged Jewish woman who, because of an impending visit from her American brother, is forced to create a contrived relationship with a man of her own faith. She places an ad in a personals column and meets Raul, a well-spoken, handsome and charming man whom she soon discovers is a Gentile and does not fulfill her reason for placing the ad. Having no alternative, Clara proceeds to instruct Raul with an intensive course in Judaism. Their journey is both humorous and captivating, but not without pitfalls. These two mature people risk a last chance at a meaningful relationship in their lives. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Just a nice love story!
23 February 2013 | by Luis Angel GonzalezSee all my reviews

Argentinian film directed by Eduardo Mignogna, who is not really that much of a widely-known director outside his country (in fact, this is the first of his films I watch). However, this movie is definitely something worthwhile.

At the moment of reading the synopsis, this film might come as just one of those simplistic love stories we so usually come across nowadays. Should one, however, jump to that conclusion before actually giving this film a try, could be a terrible mistake. What brings this film to life is the outstanding acting by both Federico Luppi and Norma Aleandro, the main characters of the film, both of whom are intertwined in the film's love story. The film just flows so natural, with the dialogues, alongside the acting, being the foundation that keeps everything running perfectly.

This film, in my opinion, succeeds in reflecting what real love should be about, and it beautifully does so in a very poetic, visual way. Of course, being related to the Spanish language would help a whole lot in appreciating this film. Nevertheless, I believe none of its grandiosity would be lost if seen by non-Spanish speakers.
