| An exceptional film--I can see why this one was Oscar nominated!
The film begins with a man awakening to discover that his wife has left him. You are unsure exactly why, but judging how sloppy this man and his son were, you figure she probably just couldn't take this any more! These guys are really lost without a wife/house keeper and come up with the brilliant idea of taking the husband's mother-in-law out of the retirement home to care for them. Though they haven't seen each other in years, she agrees to come home and is immediately a hit. The house is cleaned, groceries are bought and she's a terrific hit--and then comes the wonderful punchline!

Well written, directed and produced--this Spanish short film is a lovely and funny film. It's really too bad that the 2006 Oscars were so competitive that year--else-wise, this one might have won. By the way, the winner was WEST BANK STORY--a film I absolutely adored.

These two films and many more are included on the DVD "A Collection of 2006 Academy Award Nominated Short Films" and is well worth buying because it is jam-packed full of 13 wonderful shorts.
