Synopsis

Our take

Ricardo Darín (Wild Tales) plays a man juggling with different parts of his family–a caring father, a mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s, an ex-wife, a daughter and his girlfriend. A dynamic and sensitive mid-life crisis drama, carried by a splendid ensemble of endearing and flawed characters.
