|Judíos en el Espacio |
The continuing vitality and charm of the New Argentinean Cinema can been seen at its best in this affectionate comedy drama about an extended Jewish family, and its youngest generation's attempts to keep the family together.
Sixteen years after she gave him a farewell kiss, Santiago is reunited with his cousin and childhood sweetheart, Luciana (now an attractive drama student living in New York), when she returns home to Buenos Aires. When their curmudgeonly grandfather, Mauricio, has a near-death experience, Luciana decides to take family matters into her own hands and prepare the traditional Passover Seder.
Funny, witty and humane, this film is a declaration of ethnic pride in the face of familial and inter-generational indifference and assimilation. Its multiple and mischievous storylines pulse with life, and hilariously relate the dynamics of a Jewish family that stays together despite the pressures that threaten to bring it apart.
