Fundacion Argentina would like to invite you to the Argentine Film Evening with the special of the month Canelones, empanadas, Argentine wine, Fernet with Cola, and more.


A family wedding brings out the best and the worst in the various parties involved in this warm but pointed comedy-drama. Rafael Belvedere (Ricardo Darin) makes his living running the restaurant ran by his father, Nino (Hector Alterio), and the combination of a stressful job and familial tensions are wearing him down to a frazzle. Rafael is divorced from his wife, Sandra (Claudia Fontan), he’s all but a stranger to his daughter, Vicky (Gimena Nobile), and it’s been almost a year since he last paid a visit to his mother, Norma (Norma Aleandro), who is battling Alzheimer’s in a retirement home. With Norma’s health declining, Nino decides that he wants to renew their wedding vows and give his wife the nice church service he couldn’t afford when he was younger; however, arranging the affair turns out to be far more complicated than either Rafael or Nino imagined, and the circumstances lead to some profound changes for father, son, and the rest of the family.
