Cinco días sin Nora (Nora's Will) Photos

Movie Info

Nora had a plan. It would bring her ex-husband, Jose, and the rest of their family together for a magnificent Passover feast. But there is a flaw in her plan- a mysterious photograph from the past, hidden under the bed, which leads Jose to reexamine their relationship and rediscover their undying love for each other.-- (C) Menemsha Films

Thanks to Lujan, it's very funny.

An unexpectedly droll tale about a funeral, "Nora's Will" demonstrates the power of some people to reach beyond the grave.

Sep 15, 2011 | Rating: 3/4

This is a very wise film, without any stench of didacticism: Through it all, the abiding power - like the strong force of an atomic bond - is not love exactly, but relationship, the net that wraps us all together and holds us fast.

Lujan does what only the best actors can -- infusing the slightness not with actual substance but at least with the idea of substance, with a road map to where the writer could have located it. In Nora's Will, his performance points the way.

Mar 4, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

In her feature film debut, Mexican writer/director Mariana Chenillo has woven a genuine charmer, tartly funny and irreverent yet warm and poignant, a testament to enduring love.

Mar 3, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The tone is tricky, sliding along a tightrope of farce and wistfulness, but Luján especially walks it like a pro, his ruined leonine face registering cynicism, shock, and the embarrassment of grief.

Audience Reviews for Cinco días sin Nora (Nora's Will)

Cinco Dias Sin Nora is truly a touching, without being very sentimentalist, and funny picture about a distant family, faith, depression, conjugal life and religion. A very good exemple of our Latin Cinema. Fresh.
