SYNOPSIS

El Hijo de la Novia (The Son of the Bride) is an entertaining film with a variety of situations well presented. The central character, Rafael, is 42 years old, divorced and very stressed, as proprietor of a successful restaurant in Buenos Aires in Argentina.

However, he has no time for his family; his young daughter who lives with his former wife; his girlfriend, Natalia; and his mother, Norma, who suffers from Alzheimers and lives in a home. The thread of the story is based on the wish of his father, to give his wife a loving gesture by marrying her in white and in a church. Rafael thinks the idea is crazy and does not want to help his father organise it. The Rafael has a heart attack but recovers and realises he has too much pressure in his life. He sells his restaurant and wants to spend more time with his daughter. He also agrees to help his father arrange the wedding. Eventually he also realises he should pay more attention to his nice girlfriend. The wedding goes ahead and everyone lives happily ever after. The film evokes many emotions in the observer, as a good production should.
