After the success of My First Wedding and To Fool a Thief, Argentinian comedy maestro Ariel Winograd returns with another box-office hit that’s sure to delight audiences at the festival. Hapless charmer Diego Peretti (known as Argentina’s Hugh Grant) and the fiery Maribel Verdú (SFF13 Festival Guest) sizzle on screen as a mismatched couple with very, very different views on parenthood.
Gabriel (Peretti) is a divorced dad whose daughter Sofía is the centre of his universe. So much so that he hasn’t had a relationship in four years. His world is rocked by the sudden reappearance of Vicky, a childhood crush who has grown into a beautiful, independent, self-assured woman. Sparks fly, they fall for each other…there’s just one catch. Vicky hates kids. Gabriel hatches a farcical plot to keep Sofía’s existence a secret from Vicky, but it soon transpires that Sofía has plans of her own for Vicky. Featuring a stand-out debut performance from childactor Guadalupe Manent, this is the ultimate crowd-pleasing comedy.
