| One of the best films ever... has it all.
What else would you say if a movie offers you all this: true life comedy, real life any-day drama, touching moments, and most important: the true meaning of LOVE? Mix all this, in adequate proportions, and add a great script, and excellent performances from every actor in this film. The story has been well commented: Rafael (Ricardo Darín) is a workaholic men that spends his whole life trying to be more important that he really is, always forgetting about the ones that really care about him. But suddenly, a heart stroke and the appearance of Juan Carlos (Eduardo Blanco), a friend that he has not seen in 20 years, as a really true angel that came from the hell of a life full of tragic episodes, turns upside down Rafael's life. All this, mixed with the sacrifice that Rafael father is prepared to make: deny himself from traveling to his mother country, Italy, just to make her wife dream true: to have a wedding, in a church, before the eyes of god. This could be reasonable for any person, but the fact that his wife (Norma Aleandro) has a very advance Alzheimer disease, and his mind is elsewhere, transforms Alterio act in a truly loving and heroic one. To people around the world: go to your VHS or DVD store, and go directly to this movie. Do not fall in the usual blockbusters, that offer you more of the same. "Son of the Bride" has it all... you will not be disappointed. My score: 10 of 10.

PS: If this movie was produced in Hollywood (not likely), with Kevin Spacey, JAck Nicholson, and so, we would be taking about the best movie ever. No joke.
