Elsa & Fred

This 2005 Argentinean feature stars China Zorrilla as an obstreperous 82-year-old woman and Manuel Alexandre as her new neighbor, a tepid 78-year-old widower still mourning the death of his wife. She gives him a good kick in the keister, he comes to life, and their narrow-minded children fret over the December romance. This starts to get interesting in the homestretch, as the woman's chronic deception begins to catch up with her, but for the most part it's an extended Geritol commercial. Marcos Carnevale directed. In Spanish with subtitles. 106 min.
