Only Human


Bil’s rating (out of 5): BBB.  

Original title:  Seres Queridos

A young Jewish girl returns home to Spain and brings her Palestinian fiancé to meet her family. His fears that they won’t accept him become impressively heightened when a minor kitchen mishap results in a terrifying accident that threatens not only his welcome into the family but his relationship with his beloved. The conundrum these two find themselves in results in a dizzy farce of madcap chases and slamming doors, a silly indulgence in a highly worn-out formula but an enjoyable one all the same. Argentinean actress  is magnificent as the matriarch of the kooky clan, while is wonderful as the hapless hero.
