It's fresh, funny, biting, fast-paced and reasonably perceptive about people and their problems.

It would seem that wherever there are middle-class, midlife crises to be suffered, there are movies to be made about those crises, and they somehow all manage to transcend their local trappings in favour of a kind of borderless emotional banality.

What starts off as a possible Argentine American Beauty reeks like a room stacked with pungent flowers.

Son of the Bride manages to be affectionate without drawing too deeply from a well of sugar and schmaltz.

Jose Campanella delivers a loosely autobiographical story brushed with sentimentality but brimming with gentle humor, bittersweet pathos, and lyric moments that linger like snapshots of memory.

This is a sweet film, one not without a certain emotional intelligence and fleeting bursts of wit and humor.

An entertaining quasi-critique of modern manners whose comedy arises out of its gravity -- and a winning performance by Ricardo Darin.

Although a film of constant talk and little action, Son of the Bride maintains a brisk, buoyant pace and keeps us involved throughout its two-hour running time.

It goes on for too long and bogs down in a surfeit of characters and unnecessary subplots.

While it's not as fantastical as Amelie or as brutish as No Man's Land, it has something that neither of those movies have: a sort of measured everyday realism.

The pivotal narrative point is so ripe the film can't help but go soft and stinky.
