Storyline

Leni takes Rafi to meet her family in Madrid. Leni's family is Jewish - mother, father, older sister and daughter, brother, and grandfather. Rafi is Palestinian, in Spain since age 12. Before her father returns from work, Leni reveals Rafi's origins. He accidentally drops a block of frozen soup out the flat window, probably killing a passerby. Leni initiates a cover-up and Rafi figures out the body is probably Leni's father. The body disappears and without telling the rest of the family what they know, Leni and Rafi organize a search for dad. Mom is sure he's having an affair. Leni's belly-dancing sister kisses Rafi. Her brother grabs a rifle to shoot the Arab. Can anything be put right? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

unexpected good one
28 June 2007 | by dcldanSee all my reviews

Rafi and Lina are in love and she is gonna show him to her family. The main problem is that she is Jew while Rafi is Palestinian. While Lina's mother is trying to digest the notice, Rafi accidentally throws a frozen soap through the window and hits a man that seems to be Lina's father. This, mixed with a fanatic brother, a crazy grandparent, a nymphomaniac sister and all the family as eccentric as this will cause endless comic situations. It is not precisely a masterpiece, but it is terribly funny. It's the proof that in Spain it is possible to make good comedies not related to sex, and, being a little film, it is surprisingly funny.
