From Argentina comes this Academy Award-nominated look at Rafael, a middle-aged workaholic trying to run an upscale restaurant, deal with his bitter ex-wife, his pre-pubescent daughter, his unhappy girlfriend and his senile mother. Is it any wonder he soon suffers a heart attack? Taking this as a sign that he should simplify his life, Rafael agrees to sell his restaurant and take it easy. So why isn't his life any better? This warm, witty bit of celluloid follows a very differnt path from the Hollywood "feel good" formula—telling us that it's not a matter of eliminating all the problems in your life, but figuring out which ones are worth embracing.
