Son of the Bride (El hijo de la novia)

123' - 2001 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: Spanish
Director: Juan josé Campanella Composer: Ángel Illarramendi With: Ricardo Darín, Héctor Alterio, Norma Aleandro
At age 42, Rafael Belvedere, a self-absorbed, chain-smoking workaholic of a restaurant owner, is having a crisis. He lives in the shadow of his father, he feels guilty about rarely visiting his aging mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's, his ex-wife says he doesn't spend enough time with their daughter and he has yet to make a commitment to his girlfriend. Rafael's hard living leads to a mild heart attack, which reunites him with Juan Carlos, a childhood friend, and which causes him to reprioritize his life.
