Rafael piensa que
las cosas deberían irle mejor: dedica 24 horas al día a su restaurante, está
divorciado, ve muy poco a su hija, no tiene amigos y elude comprometerse con
su novia. Además, desde hace mucho tiempo no visita a su madre, internada en
un geriátrico porque sufre el mal de Alzheimer. Una serie de acontecimientos
inesperados le obligan a replantearse su vida. Entre ellos, la intención que
tiene su padre de cumplir el viejo sueño de su madre: casarse por la Iglesia
A family wedding brings out the
best and the worst in the various parties involved in this warm but pointed
comedy-drama. Rafael Belvedere (Ricardo Darin) makes his living running the
restaurant ran by his father, Nino (Hector Alterio), and the combination of a
stressful job and familial tensions are wearing him down to a frazzle. Rafael
is divorced from his wife, Sandra (Claudia Fontan), he's all but a stranger
to his daughter, Vicky (Gimena Nobile), and it's been almost a year since he
last paid a visit to his mother, Norma (Norma Aleandro), who is battling
Alzheimer's in a retirement home.
Rafael has a girlfriend, Naty (Natalia
Verbeke), but after a long day of work and dealing with his father, she finds
he rarely wants to do anything but watch old reruns on television. With
Norma's health declining, Nino decides that he wants to renew their wedding
vows and give his wife the nice church service he couldn't afford when he was
younger; however, arranging the affair turns out to be far more complicated
than either Rafael or Nino imagined, and the circumstances lead to some
profound changes for father, son, and the rest of the family. El Hijo de la
Novia was directed by Juan Jose Campanella, who in recent years has been
dividing his time between helming feature films in his native Argentina and
directing episodic television in America.
