A Little Story That Needs to Be a Little Longer
21 September 2020 | by canniballife-78396See all my reviews

Ariel is semi-estranged from his abrupt and somewhat eccentric father. His father (Usher) lives in the Jewish section of Buenos Aires, while Ariel - living a more secular life - makes his home in New York City. Ariel has a girlfriend he's serious about and he wants her to meet dad, so the plan is to fly down to Argentina and everybody can meet everybody. Which is not what happens. I loved the fact that nobody in this movie looks like a movie star and Buenos Aires isn't looking all that great, either. I'm not even sure how many people caught on film are actually actors. Real people, in a real place, and a little story about a guy who comes home again and starts to wonder why he left. In the end, a sweet-tempered and amusing story - but a few things need explaining that aren't explained very well. Just a few more minutes to explain Ariel's sudden change in mood.
