Review

This is a surprisingly delightful film containing the Jewish customs and social reality of Argentina. Ariel returns home after a long absence. He tries to see his father but only hears the phone ring. His father gives him orders over the phone. Every day, his father’s shop which is a charity organization is crowded with people with demands and those who serve them. Amidst the situation, Ariel is attracted to Eva, a beautiful woman who helps with the charity work. Ariel finds out she also has difficulties with her parents, which only makes him like her more. Unfortunately, she demands strict Jewish customs of the man who dates her. Ariel agonizes between new customs and a longing for love and begins to learn Jewish customs. The highly talked of film is a black comedy that intermixes Argentina’s reality and Jewish culture. (LEE Sang-yong)
