Capaz de provocar o riso e arrancar lágrimas com a mesma facilidade, este maravilhoso filme acerta em tudo: desde o excepcional roteiro à direção de Campanella, passando pelas performances irretocáveis de Darin, Alleandro e Blanco. Um clássico instantâneo
| Original Score: 5/5

The Son Of The Bride's humour is born out of an engaging storyline, which also isn't embarrassed to make you reach for the tissues. This movie is to be cherished.

Son of the Bride is slight fare, but it does have it poignancies, and it is well-acted and sweet without being cloying.

Director Juan Jose Campanella could have turned this into an Argentine retread of "Iris" or "American Beauty," but instead pulls a little from each film and creates something more beautiful than either of those films.

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.

Cinematographer Daniel Shulman keeps his lens focused on the faces of this fracturing family, and the result is surprisingly affecting, as it mirrors not only the fictional lives onscreen but clearly those of the director and, yes, the audience as well.
