Movie Info

A well-intending butcher from Madrid steps in to right a wrong made by his overconfident sibling, and as the problems begin to snowball the comedy turns to screwball in veteran Spanish writer/director Fernando Colomo's humorous take on multiculturalism in the Spanish capitol. Cain (Javier Cifrian) is a butcher from the barrio who has never had much luck in love. Cain's married brother Abel (Asier Etxeandia), on the other hand, seems to have the exact opposite problem. An annoyingly overconfident womanizer who has recently impregnated pretty Muslim Aisha (Nur Al Levi), Abel refuses to take responsibility for the unborn child. Eager to do the right thing and perhaps find a little female companionship in the process, Cain agrees to wed Aisha and assume responsibility for the child. When Cain learns that he will have to convert to Islam for the marriage to take place, however, the cultural differences between Cain and Aisha's families grow increasingly pronounced. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
