"Waiting For The Messiah"
Directed by Daniel Burman
This gently funny film looks at the residents of
Buenos Aires' thriving Jewish community, particularly two men facing
spiritual and personal crises. A young man (Daniel Hendler) begins to
question his already planned future when he falls in love with his beautiful
co-worker (Chiara Caselli), who is bisexual and Christian. Meanwhile, an
unemployed banker (Enrique Pineyro) who lives off of reward money from
returning lost and stolen wallets finds slight respite after meeting an
attractive, but lonely washroom attendant (Stefania Sandrelli). Spanish with
English subtitles. 97 minutes.
