Family Law

Completing his trilogy of tales about fatherhood, Argentinean director Daniel Burman (Lost Embrace) offers this pleasantly breezy drama about a young law professor's awkward relationship with his aging father (Arturo Goetz), a successful and beloved attorney whose dedication to his clients left little time for his son while he was growing up. Already struggling with his own identity as a new husband and father, the professor (Daniel Hendler) isn't sure how to respond when his father unexpectedly tries to draw closer. Engaging and well acted, the film is admirably low-key, yet Burman's relaxed approach becomes a liability—everything goes down smoothly but leaves one hungry for something more substantial. In Spanish with subtitles.
