Through Your Eyes

An Argentinean businessman and his dominant, diabetic wife embark on a long-awaited pleasure trip to New York City, where a slice of chocolate cake puts her in the hospital and leaves him without an English interpreter as he struggles to manage the situation. Directed by Rodrigo Furth, this 2006 drama unfolds in a city of unfeeling institutions and kindly strangers who take up the husband's cause (a Latino bellhop at the couple's hotel, a sympathetic nurse at the hospital). That sort of dualism may seem sentimental, but Furth complicates the story's morality when the husband, trying to share some of the kindness he's been shown with a Russian immigrant, does more harm than good. 102 min.
